Tironui Estate Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 15-Sep-2017
Very pale cerise-pink, lighter on the rim. The nose is very fresh, elegant and fragrant with aromas of strawberries, quince and red florals and subtle notes of fruit pastille confectionary and minerals. This has beauty and delicacy. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has elegant and aromatic flavours of strawberries, quince and watermelon, with red floral notes and mouthwatering mineral elements. The mouthfeel is refreshing and lively with bright, crisp acidity, and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line with a little thirst-quenching grip, leading to a dry, subtly-nuanced finish. This is a delightfully elegant and delicately fruited dry rosé with strawberry, quince and watermelon flavours and thirst-quenching mineral notes. Serve as an aperitif and with canapes over the next 2 years. A blend of 73% Malbec, 19% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, hand-picked, WBP and co-fermented to 11.5% alc. and approx. 5 g/L RS. 280 dozen made. 18.5/20 Sep 2017 RP $25.00
