Theory & Practice Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2018

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 22-Dec-2018
Bright, deepish strawberry-pink colour with slight purple hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is fresh and bright, and quite elegantly presented with fragrant aromas of strawberries, raspberries and redcurrants along with cherry fruit and lifted red florals, forming a fine core with subtle notes of mouthwatering minerals and a suggestion of herbs melded with confectionary. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has softly rich and lusciously juicy flavours of strawberries and cherries, raspberries and redcurrants along with delicate herb and floral elements, lifted by a little confectionary. The fruit richness is enlivened by fresh acidity and the palate flows with the fruit richness allied to a subtly textured phenolic line. This has linearity and carries to a long finish of sweet red fruits. This is a deliciously rich and juicy fruited rosé with strawberry, cherry, raspberry and redcurrant flavours on a refreshing palate with fine textures. Match with antipasto, tapas, and dim sum over the next 2 years. 100% Pinot Noir from ‘Glencoe Station’, Maraekakaho, pressed to tank and cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 6.0 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. 18.5/20 Dec 2018 RRP $20.99
