Postage Stamp ‘Genevieve’ ‘View East Vineyard’ Waiheke Island Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 18-Sep-2017
Light cerise-pink colour with some depth, lighter on the rim with light purple tints. The nose is fresh with a gently concentrated, rich heart of strawberries, raspberries and pomegranate, with red floral notes, a little confectionary and suggestions of mouthwatering minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a concentrated core of raspberries, strawberries and pomegranate, revealing red florals and confectionary with mineral elements. The wine has plenty of presence and soft fruit extract textures, along with lacy acidity which carries the wine to a dry, thirst-quenching finish. This is a gently concentrated dry rosé with weight and fruit extract, showing raspberry, strawberry and pomegranate fruit flavours along with a mouthwatering confectionary and mineral amalgam. Serve with antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. 100% Syrah from the ‘View East’ vineyard, cool-fermented in tank to 13.0% alc. and 4.2 g/L RS, the wine aged in stainless-steel for 2 month. 110 dozen made. 17.0/20 Sep 2017 RRP $24.95
