Murdoch James ‘Estate’ Martinborough Pinot Rosé 2014

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 14-Jun-2015
Pale salmon-pink colour with faded peach hues on the rim. The nose is very delicate with subtle aromas of cranberries, watermelon and soft red florals, along with chalky, minerally notes. The aromatics are pure and exude clarity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with gentle, mouthfilling flavours of cranberries and red floral elements that softly blossom on the palate. The mouthfeel is seamless in flow, with a very fine phenolic thread guiding the wine. Balanced acidity enhances the fruit sweetness and carries the palate to a very long, thirst-quenching finish of red fruits and florals. This is a very delicate dry rosé with soft cranberry and floral flavours that blossom in succulence. Serve as an aperitif and with dim sum over the next 2 years. A blend of 75% clone 115 Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier, of which 14% is from 3 y.o. vines and 11% from 28 y.o. vines, destemmed, given 4 hours skin contact and 4 hours pressing, and cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 2 g/L RS. 18.0/20 Jun 2015 RRP $20.00
