Te Kano Blanc de Noir 2019, Central Otago

Rosé from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Jul-2020
Bright, light rose-gold, even colour throughout. The nose is youthful and radiant with aromas of rose petals, fresh strawberries, white peaches and a subtle note of white pepper. Light-bodied, dry to taste, the palate has an elegant core fragrance of white florals, melded with citrus flavours of grapefruit, lemon and zest, raspberries, strawberries, along with white pepper and crunchy minerals. The acidity is lively and focused, flows along with crunchy minerals; the texture is soft, carries a light note of yoghurt, contributed to the mid-palate. The fruit is fresh and fragranced with concentration and depth; lightweight on the palate brighten by the acidity, leaves a refreshing finish. This is a refreshing and vibrant dry white made from Pinot Noir, with flavours of fragrant petals detail melded with an amalgam of citrus fruit and white pepper. Match with poached shellfish over the next 3 years. 100% Pinot Noir, a mix of clone Able, 115 and 5. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed. Fermented in stainless steel to 14% alc, 2.1 g/l RS. A period of time on light lees. 18/20 pts July 2020 RRP $27
