Outside The Box Wines Rosé 3-Way 2020, Marlborough

Rosé from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Mar-2021
Slightly hazy, pale coral-pink, even colour throughout. The nose is vibrant and fresh with a floral softness, nuances of strawberries, raspberries, rhubarb, spices, melded with stonefruit, ginger and some tropical fruit, along with a creamy veil and a slight hint of VA added interest. Medium-full bodied, a lush palate filled with aromas of stonefruit, lychee, ginger and red fruit backbone; delicate spices linger on the closing. The mouthfeel is round and lush, adorned by subtle fine-textured phenolic; lively acidity provides energy and freshness. A complex range of flavours and texture tickles the palate and mind, in between an orange wine and a rosé; overall, a lovely wine with excellent flavour intensity and texture. Match with beef carpaccio with rocket and parmesan shavings over the next 2 years. A combination of three winemaking styles made from Pinot Noir: a Chardonnay style, oak contact, lees stirred, MLF, warm ferment; a carbonic maceration; and a cold ferment with a splash of Gewurztraminer co-fermented. The resulting wine is partial MLF, with very subtle oak influence. 13% alc. 800 750ml bottles and 80 330ml bottles produced. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Mar 2021 RRP $30
