Squawking Magpie ‘Pink’ Hawke’s Bay 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 02-Aug-2016
Bright, light strawberry pink colour with some depth, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly fresh, quite taut and tightly bound with an aromatic core of strawberries, cranberries, pomegranate, watermelon and suggestions of red florals and confectionary. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate features fresh and bright fruit flavours of strawberries, cranberries, pomegranate, quince and fruit pastille confectionary. The flavours are gentle in expression. The mouthfeel is refreshing and softly mouthwatering with lacy acidity enlivening the fruit. The wine flows with good energy underlined by a soft-textured line, leading to a soft, dry, thirst-quenching finish. This is a fresh, crisp, mouthwatering rosé with a softly taut core of strawberry, cranberry and pomegranate flavours and nuances of confectionary. Serve as an aperitif, with tapas and dim sum over the next 2 years. 100% Hawke’s Bay Merlot fruit gently pressed with minimal skin contact and tank-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 2.5 g/L RS. 17.0/20 Aug 2016 RRP $23.95
