The Elder Martinborough Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 27-Oct-2016
Bright cerise-pink with some purple hues, youthful in appearance. The nose is fresh and aromatic with aromas of strawberries and red cherries entwined with notes of fruit pastille confectionary, along with lifted red florals, subtle herb notes and fermentation esters. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, this has a good core of bright dark-red cherry fruit along with raspberry notes and juicy confectionary elements lifted by floral and fresh fermentation esters. The mouthfeel is lively with fresh, gently mouthwatering acidity, and the fruit is guided by light textures that carry the raspberry, floral and confectionary flavours to a lingering, sweet-fruited finish. This is a bright and aromatic rosé with juicy flavours of strawberries, cherries and raspberries, along with lifted floral, confectionary and fermentation esters notes on a lively palate. Match with antipasto and tapas over the next 2+ years. Hand-picked Pinot Noir fruit, destemmed and given 5 days skin contact, with a portion of clear juice racked off for the rosé. The juice was cool-fermented to 13.5% alc. and 3.0 g/L RS, the wine aged 4 months on lees. 17.5/20 Oct 2016 RRP $31.00
