Sacred Hill Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 12-Sep-2017
Bright, very pale cerise-pink with some purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is soft with light and refreshing aromas of strawberries and cream with notes of watermelon and fresh herbs, fragrant red florals and suggestions of confectionary. The aromatics grow in depth with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has up-front, elegant and softly concentrated flavours of strawberries and watermelon, with some lifted red florals. The fruit brightness is balanced by a light, dry, textured grip and thirst-quenching acidity. The flavours recede as the wine carries to a light, strawberry-nuanced finish. This is an elegant, up-front dry rosé with flavours of strawberries, watermelon and red florals on a thirst-quenching, dry-textured palate. Serve as an aperitif and with canapes over the next 2 years. A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Malbec, fermented in tank with a small portion in barrel, and the Malbec a saignee portion, to 12.5% alc. and 5 g/L RS. 16.5/20 Sep 2017 RRP $16.99
