Tohu ‘Rewa’ Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Rosé 2015

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Sep-2018
Bright, pale salmon-pink colour with slight peach hues and some depth with a lighter edge, the bubbles moderately fine and very persistent. The nose is soft with a gentle core showing some depth of strawberry fruit and red florals intermixed with mineral notes, unfolding toasty aldehyde elements melded with subtle bready-yeasty autolysis. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a rounded core of savoury strawberry fruit entwined with some toasty notes and subtle bready-yeasty autolysis. The flavours are up-front, showing good weight and presence, and the wine flows smoothly with some creaminess from the mousse, leading to a soft, gentle finish with background acidity providing energy. This is a soft and rounded rosé method traditionnelle, with strawberry and toast flavours and delicate autolysis on a smooth palate. Serve with antipasto and tapas over the next 2-3 years. 100% Pinot Noir from the Awatere Valley, fermented in tank and aged on lees with MLF to 12.0% alc. and 5.6 g/L RS, the wine aged 24 months on lees, with disgorgement in March 2018. 17.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $40.00
