Lawson’s Dry Hills Marlborough Pinot Rosé 2013

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Dec-2013
Fruit from the company’s ‘Chaytor Road’ vineyard with 11 y.o. clone 10/5, and a Rapaura site with old Dijon material, selected for rosé wine production, given 24-48 hours skin contact and cool-stainless-steel fermented to 13.3% alc. and 5.2 g/L RS. Soft, even purple-pink colour with some depth, lighter on edge, youthful in appearance. The nose is fresh and bright with tightly concentrated red cherry and raspberry fruit aromas along with nuances of steely minerals and confectionary lifted by red floral elements. Dryish to taste and elegant in expression, fresh, bright and lifted flavours of raspberries cherries and watermelon form a tight and linear core. The mouthfeel is enlivened by fresh and balanced acidity that adds a degree of succulence to the fruit. Fine, dry textures provide a drying balance and lead the palate to a long, refresh and mouthwatering finish with delicate berry, confectionary and mineral notes. Serve with antipasto and charcuterie on the veranda over the next 2 years. 18.0/20 Dec 2013 RRP $19.00
