Paddy Borthwick Wairarapa Pinot Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 15-Dec-2016
Bright, pale candyfloss pink colour with some depth, very light on the rim. The nose is fresh with soft and gently aromatic aromas of strawberries, red florals and nuances of watermelon and herbs, unfolding suggestions of fermentation esters and confectionary. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate possesses light, delicate flavours of strawberries, soft red florals and subtle, savoury watermelon elements. The fruit forms an elegant core and the flavours are underlined by light, dry textures. The mouthfeel is thirst quenching with integrated acidity, and the wine crries to a light, slender, lingering finish of strawberries and watermelon. This is a light, delicately fruited dry rosé with flavours of strawberries and watermelon on a softly mouthwatering palate. Serve as an aperitif and with canapes over the next 2 years. A multi-clonal Pinot Noir selection picked early, given 12 hours skin contact and cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 2.0 g/L RS. 16.5+/20 Dec 2016 RRP $21.00
