Rapaura Springs Reserve Pinot Rosé 2020, Marlborough

Rosé from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Oct-2020
Bright, light rose-gold with a salmon hue, faintly lighter on edge. The nose is soft and elegantly presented, nuances of peaches, nectarines, strawberries underlying creaminess and flower petals. Dry to taste, medium-light bodied, the palate is bright and fresh with aromas of peaches and nectarines, interwoven freshly squeezed lime, strawberries and rose petals. The palate is smooth-flowing on a lightly creamy line, just enough roundness to keep it fresh. The fruit is just ripe with excellent flavour intensity and freshness, a light note of peppery spice is lifted on the finish. This is an elegant rosé with balanced fruit and fresh acidity, displaying bright stonefruit, strawberries and cream with flower petals detail. Serve as an aperitif and pork katsu over the next 2-3 years. A blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, selected parcels extended skin contact for 12 hours. Cool fermented to 13% alc. 18.5/20 pts Oct 2020 RRP $18.99
