The Pilot by Alpha Domus Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2012

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 04-Dec-2012
Bright, light candy-floss pink, lighter on edge. The nose is softly fresh with aromas of strawberry fruit, red florals, redcurrants, minerals and mouthwatering watermelon notes. Off-dry to taste, lush, savoury strawberry flavours are intermixed with red florals, revealing a subtle, earthy, herbal underlay. The fruit is juicy and is enlivened by slippery, lacy acidity, and supported by a fine, soft-textured tannin thread. The acidity carries the flavours to a moderately long finish with strawberry and confectionary nuances. This is an attractively juicy, off-dry rosé with lush strawberry, earth and herb flavours. Match with dim sum and tapas over the next 2 years. 100% Merlot from a single Bridge Pa Triangle vineyard, given 6 hours skin contact and cool fermented to 12.5% alc. and 4.0 g/L rs. 17.0+/20 Dec 2012 RRP $21.95
