Smith & Sheth CRU Heretaunga Rosé of Syrah 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Rosé from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 24-Mar-2022
Bright, pale salmon, even colour throughout. The nose is soft and elegantly presented; aromas of red berries, raspberries interweave red floral and spice. Medium-light bodied, red berries, raspberries melded with stonefruit, pepper dusting lifted with floral. The fruit is youthful and fresh with elegance and floral details; a taut acid line provides focus to a lengthy, dry finish. This is a detailed Rosé with a red fruit core, floral and vibrancy. Match with crispy pork belly and smoked salmon over the next 2-3 years. Syrah 96%, Viognier 4%, whole bunch pressed, cool-fermented to 13.5%alc in stainless steel, left on lees for 10 months. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Mar 2022 RRP $40
