Rod McDonald ‘Mister’ Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 22-Jan-2018
Bright salmon-pink colour with a little depth, lighter on the rim with purple tints. The nose is fresh with aromas of strawberries and cream entwined with watermelon, lifted red florals and mouthwatering confectionary elements. The aromatics show good presence and depth. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has vibrant and lively flavours of strawberries and cream, red cherries and florals with confectionary flavours. The fruit forms a fine-textured, firm core with subtle phenolic textures, underlined by fresh, lacy acidity. The wine is thirst-quenching, and the flavours carry to a lingering, crisp finish. This is a fine-textured dry rosé with a firm core of strawberries and cream, florals and confectionary on a mouthwatering palate. Serve with canapés and Asian cuisine over the next 2 years. Pinot Noir fruit, given 2 hours skin contact and cool-fermented in tank to 13.0% alc. and 0.81 g/L RS, the wine aged several months on lees. 18.0-/20 Jan 2018 RRP $24.99
