Thomas’s Bach Waiheke Island Sparkling Rosé 2013

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 19-Jan-2016
Bright, moderately deep salmon pink with peach hues, lighter on the rom. The bubbles are fine and moderately persistent. This has a full, broad nose with good intensity of savoury strawberry fruit aromas harmoniously entwined with redcurrant and mouthwatering herbal notes. Dry to tate and light-medium bodied, the palate features a fine and tightly concentrated core of red berry and redcurrant fruit flavours. Red floral element and cool-spectrum herb notes add to the flavour profile. The mouthfeel is refreshing with lacy acidity and gentle effervescence supporting the fine phenolic line which carries to a light, lingering finish of currants and herbs. This is an elegant, sparkling dry rosé with refreshing flavours of redcurrants and herbs. Match with antipasto over the next 2+ years. 90% Merlot and 10% Malbec, hand-picked from a Waiheke Island site, foot-stomped and partially fermented in stainless-steel, and partly indigenous yeast barrel-fermented, the secondary fermentation by the Charmat method in tank. 12.0% alc. and 3 g/L RS. 200 dozen made. 16.5+/20 RRP $28.00
