Stoneleigh ‘Wild Valley’ ‘Wild Fermented’ Marlborough Rosé 2018

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 09-Sep-2018
Bright, pale cerise pink with some depth and slight purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and fragrant with good intensity and depth of strawberries and cream, dark red cherries along with lifted red florals and a mouthwatering amalgam of minerals and herbs, unfolding hints of fresh fermentation esters. Dryish to taste, the palate has sweetly rich and vibrant aromatic flavours of strawberries and cream, with intense florals, hints of raspberries and nuances of confectionary, along with ferment esters. The flavours are up-front and succulent and enlivened by bright,, thirst-quenching acidity, and the wine flows smoothly along a fine-textured palate with good linearity, leading to a lingering, juicy finish. This is a sweetly aromatic dryish rosé with strawberries and cream, raspberry, florals and minerals on a fragrant palate. Match with antipasto and dim sum over the next 2 years. Pinot Noir fruit, clones 5, 6, 777 and 115 from the ‘Stoneleigh’ vineyards, vines 10-30 y.o., picked and given a short period of skin contact and indigenous yeast fermented in stainless-steel to 13.32% alc. and 6.5 g/L RS. 18.5-/20 Sep 2018 RRP $17.99
