Stone Paddock by Paritua Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 19-Feb-2018
Pale peach-pink colour with a little depth, very light on the rim. The nose is soft with gently fresh and moderately concentrated aromas of strawberries and cream along with red florals and some fermentation esters lift, unfolding confectionary nuances. Dry to taste and light-bodied, the palate has finely concentrated flavours of strawberries along with lifted florals and fermentation esters, and a little confectionary. The palate is gently crisp with fresh acidity, and the wine flows easily on a light, fine phenolic line with good energy, leading to a light, confectionary nuanced finish. This is a pretty and light-fruited dry rosé with strawberry and floral flavours on a fresh, flowing palate. Serve as an aperitif and with canapés over the next 2 years. A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc from the company’s Bridge Pa Triangle vineyard, given a short period of soaking and cool-fermented in tank to 11.5% alc. and <1.0 g/L RS. 17.5-/20 Feb 2018 RRP $20.00
