Lawson’s Dry Hills Marlborough Pinot Rosé 2012

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 31-Oct-2012
Pinot Noir fruit, 11 y.o. 10/5 clone from the company's ‘Chaytor Road' site and Dijon clones from a Rapaura vineyard, given 48 hours skin contact and cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 5.4 g/L rs. Bright, purple-hued, ruby-pink colour, lighter on rim. The bouquet is fresh, firm and intense with aromas of bright raspberry and cherry fruit aromas with a fresh herb underlay, and hints of steel, minerals and confectionary. Dry to taste, zesty, juicy and luscious flavours of raspberry fruit are enlivened by vibrant and racy acidity. Well-concentrated and packed flavours form a deep, slightly textured core and palate line that leads to a very long, linear and dry finish with bright raspberry lozenge notes. This is an intense and concentrated, crisply dry rosé to serve with antipasto and tapas over the next 2+ years. 18.0/20 Oct 2012 RRP $19.00
