Mount Riley ‘The Bonnie’ ‘Limited Release’ Marlborough Pinot Noir Rosé 2015

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Nov-2015
Pinot Noir fruit from the company’s ‘Litchfield’ vineyard, central Wairau, given 24 hours skin contact and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS Bright, pale pink-red colour with some depth, lighter on the edge. This has a softly presented nose with a fresh core of bright strawberry and cream, cherry and cranberry fruits along with a subtle confectionary lift. There is an underlying steely freshness to the aromatics. Dry to taste, the mouthfeel is soft and rounded with a gentle heart of quince, strawberries and cranberries. The mouthfeel is smooth-flowing with a suggestion of unctuousness, and the wine flows a soft-textured line with integrated acidity. Some savoury confectionary elements emerge and the wine leads to a dry, fine-textured finish with watermelon nuances. This is a soft, fresh-fruited rosé with strawberry, cranberry and watermelon flavours. Serve as an aperitif and with antipasto over the next 2 years. 17.0-/20 Nov 2015 RRP $18.99
