Mission Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-Sep-2017
Bright cerise-pink colour with some peach hues at the heart, and light purple tints on edge. The nose is fresh with full, up-front, bright and vibrant aromas of cherries, with raspberries and cream, along with fragrant red florals and hints of confectionary. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has fresh and youthful flavours of bitter cherries with raspberry notes and subtle herb nuances, unfolding red florals and hints of confectionary. The flavours form a good core. The mouthfeel possesses lacy acidity and the wine flows along a light, dry, phenolic, textured line, leading to a dry finish of raspberries, herbs and florals. This is a fresh, aromatic, dry rosé with flavours of raspberries and bitter cherries, subtle herb and confectionary notes on a soft-textured palate. Serve as an aperitif, with canapes and antipasto over the next 18 months to 2 years. A blend of 40% Merlot, 29% Malbec, 20% Syrah and 11% Cabernet Franc, a portion of the fruit given overnight skin contact, the rest crushed directly to press, and fermented to 13.3% alc. and 6.0 g/L RS. 16.5+/20 Sep 2017 RRP $16.00
