SOHO ‘Westwood’ Waiheke Island Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 29-Oct-2017
Bright, pale strawberry pink colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is moderately firm with deep aromas of red cherry fruit entwined with cranberry and pomegranate notes, unveiling red florals and a little chalky minerality. Dryish to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a sweet fruit core of cherries, strawberries and raspberries with pomegranate nuance. The fruit richness adds to the mouthfeel and presence, with light phenolic textures and balanced, refreshing acidity. The palate is gently mouthwatering and carries floral elements to a lingering, elegant finish. This is a sweet berry and pomegranate fruited, dry rosé with good palate presence and a gently mouthwatering, lingering finish. Serve as an aperitif and with antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. Hand-picked fruit, a blend of 76.42% Merlot, 8.13% Syrah, 6.36% Malbec and 5.3% Cabernet Franc from the ‘Jomara’ vineyard, cool-fermented in tank to 12.0% alc. and 6.9 g/L RS. 18.0-/20 Oct 2017 RRP $25.00
