Obsidian Waiheke Island Rosé 2015

Rose from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 30-Nov-2015
A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Malbec, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 5 g/L RS. Bright peach-pink with light red hues at the heart, lighter edged. The nose is delicate and clean with fresh aromas of watermelon and cranberries along with subtly lifted red florals and mouthwatering herb and red berry elements. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features bright, juicy and thirst-quenching flavours of strawberries, watermelon and cranberries, along with red floral elements and hints of confectionary. The fruit carries good richness, which is balanced by fine, light, drying phenolics and lively, lacy acidity. The wine follows a positive line leading to a soft-textured, dry finish. This is a fresh, juicy, dryish rosé with strawberry, watermelon and cranberry flavours and some richness. Serve as an aperitif and with Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. 257 dozen made. 17.0+/20 Dec 2015 RRP $26.50
