Sugar Loaf ‘Harriet’ Marlborough Rosé 2013

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-Jun-2014
Named after Kate and David Acland’s youngest child. Pinot Noir from the Lower Wairau, saigneed and fermented to 13.0% alc. and 6 g/L RS. Light, cerise pink colour with salmon hues on the rim. The nose is elegant with refreshingly bright and mouthwatering, lifted aromas of cherries, raspberries and candy floss, with red floral notes. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, light and lively fruit flavours of strawberries, raspberries and confectionary feature on the palate, forming a soft core. The fruitiness is enhanced by lacy acidity and underlined by a fine, dry, phenolic line that balances the fruit sweetness, lending a thirst-quenching mouthfeel. The palate flows effortlessly to a light, pastille-fruited finish. This is a delightfully soft, light and dryish rosé with strawberry and candy floss flavours. Serve as an aperitif and with antipasto over the next 2 years. 50 cases made. 17.5-/20 Jun 2014 RRP $17.00
