Murdoch James ‘Rhiannon’ Martinborough Pinot Meunier Rosé 2014

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 14-Jun-2015
Bright, very pale, purple-hued pink colour, lighter on edge and youthful in appearance. The nose is tightly bound with finely concentrated, delicate fruit aromas of strawberries and quince, entwined with piquant herbs, red floral fragrances and mouthwatering mineral and reductive complexities. This has vinous presence and depth. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, finely concentrated and delicately rich and succulent fruit flavours of strawberries, quince and florals form an intense core. The fruit is vibrant, bright and lively, with thirst-quenching acidity enhancing the juiciness. Very fine phenolics balance the palate, providing a dry linearity that carries the crisp, cutting textures to a very long and sustained finish with subtly luscious fruit and refreshing floral and mineral nuances. This is a concentrated, delicately rich-fruited dry rosé with minerality and linearity. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and antipasto over the next 2 years. 100% Pinot Meunier from the ‘Blue Rock’ vineyard, 55% from 3 y.o. vines and 45% from 28 y.o. vines, destemmed, given 4 hours skin contact and 4 hours pressing, and cool-fermented to 13.5% alc. and 1.75 g/L RS. 18.5/20 Jun 2015 RRP $20.00
