Spy Valley ‘Hand Picked Single Estate’ Marlborough Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Oct-2017
Very pale salmon-pink colour, near colourless on the rim. The nose is light and delicately fragrant with aromas of white stonefruits and subtle notes of red fruits and florals, along with thirst-quenching minerals. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a fine, elegantly concentrated core of white stonefruits with subtle red berry fruit and floral elements. The fruit has a delicate richness, balanced by mouthwatering mineral notes and light phenolic textures. The acidity provides good freshness, and the wine carries to a light, minerally finish. This is a delicate and finely concentrated dry rosé with stonefruit, berry and floral flavours and thirst-quenching minerals on a light-textured palate. This is in the Provencal rosé style. Serve as an aperitif and with canapes over the next 2 years. Predominantly Pinot Noir, 95% hand-picked and WBP, 5% saignee, fermented in stainless-steel with a small percentage with solids in barrel to 12.5% alc. and 4.2 g/L RS. A small portion of estate Syrah and Malbec was WBP and tank fermented and added to the final blend. 17.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $23.00
