Murdoch James ‘Estate’ ‘777’ Martinborough Rosé 2013

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 12-May-2014
Clone 777 Pinot Noir from the ‘Long Gully’ block from 6 y.o. vines, given 8 hours skin contact and fermented to 13.5% alc. and 0.26 g/L RS. Bright, pale cerise-pink with pale purple hues on edge. The nose is fresh with delicately aromatic aromas of raspberries and cream with nuances of fruit pastille confectionary. Dry to taste and elegantly proportioned, light flavours of raspberries and cream with lifted red florals and confectionary nuances are the feature on palate. The mouthfeel is near-unctuous and smooth flowing, with slippery acidity enhancing the soft, raciness. A very fine phenolic line guides the flavours to a dry, clean, mouthwatering finish. This is a lively, refreshing and smooth, dry Pinot Noir rosé to serve as an aperitif, with antipasto and with tapas over the next 2 years. 17.5+/20 May 2014 RRP $20.00
