Maison Noire Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 22-Feb-2018
Bright, pale pink colour with suggestions of purple hues at the heart, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly fresh with light aromas of strawberries and cream, along with an amalgam of savoury herbs and nutty elements, unfolding subtle oxidative nuances and some confectionary. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate is crisp and refreshing with brisk, slippery acidity underlining savoury strawberry fruit flavours that are entwined with nutty and herbal nuances. Red florals and confectionary hints emerge as the wine carries along a thirst-quenching dry line. The palate leads to a light, dry finish. This is a crisp and refreshing, mouthwatering dry rosé with savoury strawberry, herb and nutty flavours and a textural mouthfeel. Serve with antipasto and tapas over the next 18 months to 2 years. Cabernet Franc fruit from Maraekakaho destemmed and given 12 hours skin contact, and fermented in stainless-steel to 10.8% alc. and dryness. 16.5/20 Feb 2018 RRP $21.00
