Margrain Martinborough Pinot Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 21-Nov-2016
Moderately deep, cerise-ruby pink colour, a little lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. The nose is fresh and up-front with deep and full aromas of strawberries, raspberries and attractively lifted red florals, revealing subtle mouthwatering herbal suggestions and nuances of confectionary. Off-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features bright and lusciously juicy, sweet-fruited flavours of raspberries and strawberries, along with watermelon, aromatic red florals and subtle confectionary notes. The fruit richness is balanced by light phenolic textures lending a dry, thirst-quenching mouthfeel. The acidity is bright and lively, and enhances the structure and flow, leading to a bold and flavoursome, fruity finish. This is a delicious, mouthwatering, juicy fruited off-dry rosé with raspberry and strawberry flavours with floral and confectionary hints. Serve as an aperitif, and with antipasto over the next 2 years. Pinot Noir fruit, the wine made by saignee, drawn from the Pinot Noir fermenter, and by batch processing with parcels of fruit given 18-30 hours skin contact, the fruit fermented to 13.6% alc. and 8.3 g/L RS. 18.5/20 Nov 2016 RRP $24.00
