Morton Estate Methode Traditionnelle Rosé NV

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-Nov-2011
97% Pinot Noir and 3% Chardonnay, the fruit 98% from Hawke's Bay and 2% Marlborough, from the 2006 vintage. Fermented to 12.0% alc., carrying 25 g/L dosage, the wine spending over 4 years on lees. Lot 07051. Bright, strawberry and cerise pink with peach hues to the colour, with a fairly persistent and fine bead. The nose is bright and up-front with vibrant raspberry and red cherry fruit aromas lifted with some confectionary, herb and esters, and subtle yeast and minerally notes. Medium-medium dry to taste, sweet and lifted raspberry and cherry fruit flavours fill the palate. The effervescence is soft and relaxed, and the mouthfeel rounded with lusciousness. The fruitiness features over the yeast autolysis and is enlivened by good clean acidity. The wine has a moderately sustained and delicate finish. A bold, fruity and accessible rosé to serve with antipasto, tapas and dim sum over the next 2 years. 16.5/20 Nov 2011 RRP $22.00
