Spencer Hill Estate ‘Spencer Hill’ Nelson Pinot Noir Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 08-Aug-2017
Bright, light cerise-pink with some depth and slight purple hues on the rim. The nose is bright and fresh with fragrant aromas showing good intensity of strawberry and cherry fruit, along with lifted red florals and a suggestion of confectionary. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has up-front and well-concentrated flavours and a core of bright, aromatic strawberry and cherry fruit entwined with red florals and nuances of confectionary. The fruit is juicy and balanced by mouthwatering lacy acidity, and the wine flows with good drive and energy along a soft line, leading to a long, lingering aromatic finish with sweet fruit notes. This is n up-front, well-concentrated, lusciously juicy dry rosé with cherry and strawberry flavours, along with floral and confectionary suggestions on a thirst-quenching palate. Match with antipasto and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. From 25 y.o. clone 5 Pinot Noir from ‘Block 3’ in the Upper Moutere estate vineyards, given 20 hours skin contact and cool-fermented to 13.5% alc. and 4.0 g/L RS. 18.0-/20 Aug 2017 RRP $20.00
