Mahi Rosé 2020, Marlborough

Rosé from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Nov-2020
Bright, pale salmon-pink with a rose-gold hue, even colour throughout. The nose is full and vibrant, nuances of strawberries, watermelon, intermix fresh herbs and a floral overtone. Dry to taste, medium-light bodied, vibrant aromas of strawberries, raspberries form an elegant core, interweave subtle fresh herbs of dill and oregano. Charming spices fill the palate along with floral fragrances. The silky fine-textured palate flows with great energy with the support of lively acidity, and zesty citrus spices lend an elegant, styled finish. This is a stylish and sleek dry rosé with pure fruit expression, immaculate details and concentration on a silky, refined palate. Match with salmon gravlax and white fish over the next 2-3 years. 100% Pinot Noir from a single vineyard in Wairau Valley, picked purposely for rosé from low-cropping vines. Immediately pressed juice to minimise time on skins, cool-fermented to 12.9% alc, 1 g/l RS. Vegan friendly. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Nov 2020 RRP $24.9
