Paddy Borthwick Pinot Rosé 2020, Wairarapa

Rosé from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 11-Dec-2020
Bright, pale neon-orange with a pink hue and some depth, even colour throughout. The nose is softly-full, aromas of deep florals leading the bouquet, along with cranberries, cherries and candied orange. Medium-bodied, aromas of cherries, cranberries are penetrating on the palate, accompanied by spices of orange peels and a hint of confectionary. The palate is creamy and fresh, balanced by mouthwatering acidity, carrying spices linger to a refreshing finish. Subtle phenolic added to the texture, flow along a mineral line with ease. This is a refreshing Pinot Rosé with red fruit, orange peels and spices on a creamy and elegant palate. Match with salmon gravlax and charcuteries over the next 2-3 years. Fruit was partly crushed and pressed for juice; another part was selected from Pinot Noir vats after a few hours of skin contacts, then fermented to 13.5% alc. One batch finished ferment in old oak barrels and left on less for 2 months before blending. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Dec 2020 RRP $22.95
