Station House ‘Blossom’ Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2011

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 20-Dec-2011
Made from 60% Merlot and 40% Syrah from the ‘William Murdoch' site in the Gimblett Gravels, left on skins for 24 hours, fermented at 15° C for 33 days to 12.7% alc and 0.5 g/L rs. Bright strawberry red with some depth to the colour, and slight purple hues on edge. This has a softly full, but restrained nose of strawberry fruit with red florals and a hint of fresh herbs. Dry and medium-bodied, racy and crisp acidity marks the palate, carrying light flavours of strawberries, and spice from the Syrah. The wine has a firm core underlining the fruit with a fine textural thread. The phenolics contribute to a dry, thirst-quenching finish that features sweet berryish fruit with spice notes and acidity. A very dry, slightly firm rosé that will match charcuterie, tapas and Mediterranean fare over the next 2-3 years. BioGro certified organic. 16.5-/20 Dec 2011 RRP $21.95
