Sherwood Estate ‘Stoney Range’ Waipara Valley Saignee Pinot Noir Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 26-Mar-2018
Pale peach colour with some copper and ‘eye of the partridge’ hues with depth. The nose is fresh with aromas of strawberries, watermelon and quince, along with subtle nutty and mineral elements at the core. This is gently mouthwatering. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has flavours of wild strawberries, watermelon and quince that form a rounded, but thirst-quenching heart. The fruit flavours are underlined by slightly grippy, drying phenolic textures with lacy acidity lending a mouthwatering mouthfeel. Some red floral nuances unfold and the wine carries to a light, dry finish. This is a dry rosé with strawberry, watermelon and quince flavours on a rounded, mouthwatering palate with some dry grip. Serve with antipasto, tapas and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. Pinot Noir fruit from the ‘Pilgrim’, ‘Glasnevin’, ‘Terraces’, Georges Road’, ‘Stirling’ and ‘Church Road’ vineyards, after 2 days on skins, 5% of the juice was drawn off and cool-fermented to 12.0% alc. and 1.5 g/L RS., the wine aged 7 months on lees. 16.5/20 Mar 2018 RRP $15.00
