Richmond Plains ‘Monarch’ Nelson Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 22-Dec-2017
Bright strawberry pink colour with eye-of-the-partridge hues and some depth, lighter on the edge. The nose is soft and gently voluminous with rich aromas of strawberries and cream, with quince and red florals, and a subtle amalgam of herbs and confectionary. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright and vibrant, thirst-quenching flavours of stonefruits, strawberries and cream and quince. The fruit is lifted by red florals and hints of confectionary. The palate flows with good drive and energy along a very fine line with delicate, lacy acidity. The wine carries to lingering finish of strawberries, quince and florals. This is a delicate, but vibrant, mouthwatering dry rosé, with strawberry, quince and floral flavours. Serve as an aperitif and with canapés over the next 2 years. 100% Pinot Noir fruit, 75% clone 5 from the ‘Ranzau’ vineyard, 21% ‘Marsland’ vineyard and 4% ‘Richmond Plains’ vineyard, 50% crushed and given overnight skin contact and 50% WBP and fermented to 12.7% alc. and 5 g/L RS. Vegan wine, and certified AsureQuality organic. 18.5-/20 Dec 2017 RRP $22.99
