SOHO ‘Westwood’ Waiheke Island Rosé 2011

Rose from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 13-Oct-2011
86.5% Merlot and 13.5% Malbec, hand-picked fruit from SOHO's ‘Onetangi' vineyard fermented to 12.5% alc. and 6.5 g/L rs. Brilliant, lurid, pink-ruby red colour with youthful purple hues, this has an up-front and exuberant bouquet of bright, raspberry fruit with attractive confectionary elements. Dryish to taste, the palate features succulent and lush raspberry and red berry fruit flavours with florals and an aromatic lift. There is good depth and weight of fruit, and the wine is rounded in texture with moderate acidity, enhancing the richness on the palate. Match with salmon and tuna, cold meats and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. 18.0-/20 Oct 2011 RRP $24.99
