Pasquale ‘The White Rose’ Waitaki Valley 2011

Rose from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 25-Jun-2012
Made from Pinot Noir and a small portion of Dolcetto from the Waitaki Valley, WBP, the free-run juice was cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. Bright, pale straw colour with the faintest blush, pale on rim. The nose is attractively lifted aromas of exotic white florals, nuances of red berry fruit, quite ethereal in expression, with some youthful fermentation esters present Dry to taste, subtle stonefruit and floral flavours are lifted with hints of red fruits and show a touch of lusciousness. The mouthfeel is smooth, with slippery acidity and the delicate flavours flow seamlessly. This is mouthwatering and crisp, the acid line continuing through to a zesty, long and nuanced finish. Match the delicate, subtly exotic and thirst-quenching blush wine with antipasto and charcuterie, or serve as an aperitif over the next 2+ years. 166 cases made. 17.0+/20 Jun 2012 RRP $32.00
