SOHO ‘Westwood’ Waiheke Island Rosé 2013

Rose from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 05-Aug-2013
Hand-picked fruit, 97% Merlot and 3% Malbec from the SOHO’s ‘’Onetangi’ vineyard, fermented to 13.0% alc. and 5 g/L RS. Moderately deep purple-hued pale-pink colour. This has a deep nose with bright aromas of raspberries and redcurrants entwined with chalky mineral and herb notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, a soft, dense, rich core of redcurrants, raspberries and red florals is enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity. The mouthfeel is rounded and soft in texture, but there is plenty of liveliness and vitality, with delicate herb and mineral elements adding interest. The palate has concentration and the fruit extract is carried to a gentle, but mouthwatering finish. This is a rounded rosé with plenty of fruit weight but is refreshing and lively. Match with dim sum, charcuterie and tapas over the next 2+ years. 17.5-/20 Aug 2013 RRP $26.00
