Rock Ferry Central Otago Methode Traditionnelle Brut Rosé 2011

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 06-Oct-2015
Moderately deep salmon-pink colour, lighter on the rim, the bead very fine and moderately persistent. The bouquet is soft and full with a good core of strawberries and soft, red fruits, harmoniously melded with subtle toasty and bready autolysis. This has good presence from the Pinot Noir, and unfolds red florals, cherry fruit, herbs and earthy complexities. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the mouthfeel is gently luscious, enlivened by soft effervescence. This has a positive core of savoury strawberry fruit in a complex amalgam of toast and nutty, bready autolysis, along with hints of earth and herbs. Soft phenolics and integrated acidity provide structure, and the wine carries to a soft, thirst-quenching, dry finish. This is a gently rich Rosé Methode with complex strawberry, toast and bready flavours and a soft, dry mouthfeel. Serve as an aperitif and with antipasto or poultry over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked Pinot Noir from the ‘Trig Hill’ vineyard, Bendigo, WBP and fermented in stainless-steel barrels and seasoned oak to 12.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months on lees with 100% MLF, and aged 3 years en tirage with 5.0 g/L dosage. Lot L11019. 17.5-/20 Oct 2015 RRP $45.00
