The Landing Bay of Islands Rosé 2018

Rose from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 18-Aug-2018
Bright, pale pink colour, with slight purple hues and a little depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and fragrant with aromas of strawberries and lifted red florals, unfolding some fresh fermentation esters. The aromatics grow in depth and concentration with aeration. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has restrained and elegantly soft strawberry and cherry fruit with aromatic red florals and notes of fresh fermentation esters. The flavours form a gentle core, and the wine flows along a soft line. Fresh, lacy acidity enlivens the mouthfeel, and the flavours carry to a lingering, nuanced finish. This is an elegantly concentrated dry rosé with strawberry and cherry flavours with florals and esters on a soft palate with fresh acidity. Serve as an aperitif, with canapés and antipasto over the next 2 years. 100% Syrah, WBP and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 11.5% alc. and 8 g/L RS. 17.0/20 Aug 2018 RRP $26.99
