The Elder Martinborough Rosé 2018

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 18-Oct-2018
Bright, pale cerise-pink colour with a little depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is very soft and subtle with delicate aromas of strawberries, cherries, notes of herbs and hints of thirst-quenching savoury minerals. The aromatics build with aeration, unfolding red floral nuances. Dry to taste, the palate is softly full with sweet fruit flavours of strawberries and cherries along with red florals. The fruit has richness and a hint of unctuousness to the texture, balanced by soft acidity. The wine flows smoothly along a seamless line, growing in fruitiness and richness, leading to a lush, long finish. This is a sweetly rich-fruited dry rosé with a subtle unctuousness and smooth texture, with soft acidity and smooth flowing flavours of strawberries and cherries. Match with tapas over the next 2 years. A saignee wine with Pinot Noir clones Abel, 115, 114, 667 and 5, 3-4 days cold soaked and tank-fermented to13.0% alc., and 1.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 4 months on lees and vinified with very low levels of SO2. 17.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $31.00
