Osawa ‘Flying Sheep’ Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2013

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 10-Oct-2015
100% Sangiovese cold soaked 12 hours on skins and fermented in stainless-steel to 14.2% alc. and 1.5 g/L RS. Bright peach-pink colour with some depth, lighter on rim. The bouquet is softly full with aromas of savoury strawberry fruit aromas that build in depth and concentration in the glass, unfolding flinty lees and mineral elements, along with earth and smoke nuances. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, this has plenty of palate presence and vinosity, with a well packed, dense core of savoury strawberry and raspberry fruit flavours, entwined with earth and mineral notes. The fruit shows some lusciousness with alcoholic power underlining the fruit. Fine textures and lively acidity lend linearity and the wine is driven to a long finish of savoury strawberry fruit and earthy elements. This is a fulsome, weighty and lush, dry rosé with savoury strawberry fruit and some power. Match with charcuterie, antipasto and pasta dishes over the next 2 years. 16.5/20 Oct 2015 RRP $28.00
