Q Wine Rosé 2021, Waitaki Valley

Rosé from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 26-Aug-2021
Bright, salmon-pink with some depth, even colour throughout. The wine is softly full, with crunch; fresh aromas of raspberries, pomegranate entwined with blood orange and orange blossoms. Medium-light bodied, dry to taste, the palate is flooded with succulent red berries, blood orange and zest, orange blossom lingers to a refreshing finish. The wine possesses good fruit concentration, support by mouthwatering acidity, flows along a chalky-textured line. This is a crisp rosé with great flavour intensity of citrus and red fruit on a fine-textured palate. Match with salmon tartare and fishcakes over the next 2-3 years. 100% Pinot Noir, fermented to 13.3% alc, 2.9 g/l RS, 10% fermented in French oak barriques, aged 2 months. 130 cases produced. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $33
