Thyme Hill Bonanza Merlot Rosé 2023, Central Otago

Rosé from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 14-Dec-2023
Bright, even, pale rose-gold. The nose is softly full, packed with aromas of strawberry, red berry, violet and a hint of meatiness. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, aromas of ripe field strawberry and red berry melded with smoked meat, clove, nutmeg and violet. The wine shows concentration and ripeness of flavours, and the meaty mealiness adds interest and substance. Balanced, lively acidity flows elegantly to a crisp, satisfying finish. Serve as an aperitif or match with beef carpaccio over the next 3 years. Fruit from Letts Gully, Alexandra, fermented to 13.5% alc, 4 g/l RS. Vegan friendly. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Dec 2023 RRP $24
