Middle-Earth Nelson Rosé 2018

Rose from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 07-Aug-2018
Bright, very pale pink, near colourless on the edge. The nose is very fresh, elegant and fragrant with lifted aromas of strawberries and red florals entwined with confectionary elements and fresh fermentation esters. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has aromatic strawberry and red floral fruit along with herb nuances with confectionary and lifted fermentation esters. The flavours form a taut core with brisk acidity providing energy, the wine flowing along a slippery-textured line, leading to a lingering aromatic finish. This is a crisp and taut dryish rosé with strawberry, floral and herbal flavours along with confectionary and youthful fermentation esters. Serve with antipasto and dim sum over the next 2 years. A blend of Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir, hand-picked and given a short soak on skins, and fermented in tank with a very small portion finishing ferment in barrel, to 12.0% alc. and 5.5 g/L RS. 16.5+/20 Aug 2018 RRP $24.00
