Lawson’s Dry Hills Marlborough Pinot Rosé 2014

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Dec-2014
Light, even, watermelon pink colour with light, youthful purple hues on edge. This has a refreshing and well-concentrated nose of strawberries, raspberries and cream, redcurrants and bright red florals, the aromatics still tightly bound and yet to unfold. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of strawberries and raspberries are lifted by delicate confectionary elements. The fruit has a subtle richness and gentle lusciousness, and the soft acidity is enhanced by discreet acidity. Fine and dry textures carry the wine along a positive line leading to a dry, bright-fruited finish. This dry rosé has a soft core with bright fruit and a gentle richness. Serve as an aperitif and with antipasto over the next 2 years. 10/5 clone Pinot Noir fruit from 11 y.o. vines on ‘Chaytors Road’ and Dijon clone material from a Rapaura site, given 24-48 hours skin contact and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 5.1 g/L RS. 17.0+/20 Dec 2014 RRP $19.95
