Smith & Sheth CRU Heretaunga Rosé of Syrah 2023, Hawke’s Bay

Rosé from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 09-Apr-2024
Bright, pale coral, even colour throughout. The nose is fresh and gentle, with aromas of red berries, stonefruit, herbs and a touch of spice. Medium-light bodied, aromas of red berries melded with apricot, subtle fresh herbs and a hint of white pepper on the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, smooth-flowing, fresh acidity carries a juicy and crisp finish. This Syrah Rosé shows pristine, succulent fruit on a creamy textured flow. Serve as an aperitif or match with pork terrine over the next 2-3 years. 91% Syrah, 9% Viognier, handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented cool in stainless steel to 13% alc, left on lees for 14 months. Vegan friendly. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Apr 2024 RRP $40
