Mt Beautiful North Canterbury Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 12-Apr-2018
Moderately deep strawberry-pink colour with slight peach hues and purple tints on the rim. The nose is softly fresh with good depth and volume of strawberries and cream aromas along with lifted red florals and subtle notes of confectionary. This is gently mouthwatering. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has sweet and luscious flavours of strawberries and cream intermingling with red florals and confectionary elements. The mouthfeel is slippery with crisp, underlying acidity, and the wine flows along a fine, phenolic-textured line, leading to a lingering finish of strawberry confectionary. This is a gently luscious-fruited dry rosé with flavours of strawberries and cream, florals and confectionary on a fresh-flowing palate. Serve as an aperitif, with canapés and Asian fare over the next 2 years. A blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Gris. The Pinot Noir given 24 hours maceration and fermented in tank and barrel. The Pinot Gris fermented in stainless-steel. 12% of the total blend was barrel-fermented. 13.0% alc. and 1 g/L RS. 778 cases made. 16.5+/20 Apr 2018 RRP $24.00
