Nockie’s Palette Carina’s Cuvee Waitaki Rosé Brut 2021, North Otago

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 27-Feb-2023
Bright, even, pale blush pink with a peach shade. The bubbles are fine and persistent. The nose is softly full, with cream-dipped strawberry, peach, blossom and minerals aromas. Medium-bodied, aromas of strawberry and raspberry melded with peach and peach blossom and lingered with creamy layered chalky minerals. The creamy mousse injects freshness alongside a soft, lively acid line, carrying the purity of fruit and minerals to linearity. This Methode Traditonelle is youthful with a pure expression of fruit and Waitaki chalky minerality on a vibrant, creamy mouthfeel. Match with salmon pate and prawn cocktail over the next 3-4 years. A blend of Chardonnay 39%, Pinot Gris 35%, Pinot Noir 26%, handpicked, whole bunch pressed then blended, selected yeast strain fermentation followed by full MLF. 11.5% alc. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Feb 2023 RRP $69
