Mondillo Central Otago Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 05-Sep-2016
Moderately deep cerise-pink with purple hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and fine in proportion with firm and concentrated aromas of bright raspberry fruit along with subtle notes of strawberries, cranberries, red florals and a suggestion of confectionary. Mouthwatering mineral notes unfold with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses an elegantly concentrated core of bright raspberry fruit entwined with cranberries, red florals, herbs and nuances of confectionary. The wine has a good heart with body and presence, and an underlying, fine, dry phenolic line alongside soft lacy acidity lending poise and energy. The wine has plenty of drive and leads to a dry, tight, thirst-quenching finish with raspberry notes. This is a well-concentrated dry rosé with a fine core of raspberry fruit and mouthwatering textures. Serve as an aperitif, with tapas and antipasto over the next 2 years. Pinot Noir fruit from the Mondillo’ vineyard, Bendigo, given 5 days on skins and cool-fermented in tank to 12.8% alc. and 7 g/L RS. 18.5-/20 Sep 2016 RRP $25.00
