Mudbrick Waiheke Island Rosé 2015

Rose from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 20-Sep-2015
Bright, purple-hued pink colour with some depth, lighter on the rim and youthful in appearance. This has a softly full and rich nose with aromas of raspberries and cream, showing good depth and presence, unfolding subtle red florals, herbs and confectionary detail with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is full, soft and rounded with concentrated flavours of raspberries and cream and an array of red berry fruits entwined with savoury herbal nuances. The wine is soft-textured and smooth-flowing with integrated, underlying acidity providing freshness, energy and lift to the fruit. This has weight and vinosity, and the wine carries to a soft, mellow finish with flavours of red berry fruits, herbs and lifted confectionary elements. This is a full, soft and rounded dry rosé with good presence of raspberry and cream flavours intermixed with herbal nuances. Seve with antipasto and tapas over the next 18 months to 2 years. A blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Syrah, 8% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon from the ‘Shepherds Point’, ‘Mudbrick’ and ‘Goldie’ vineyards, 100% saignee and indigenous yeast fermented in stainless-steel to 14.0% alc. and 1.28 g/L RS. 357 cases made. 17.0+/20 Sep 2015 RRP $27.00
