Tohu ‘Single Vineyard’ Nelson Pinot Rosé 2012

Rose from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 13-Dec-2012
Soft, lurid cerise-pink with good depth, some purple hues on rim. The bouquet is full and bold with bright primary aromas of raspberries and cream, along with ripe cherry fruit and confectionary notes. Dryish to taste, this is fulsome and up-front with plenty of raspberry and cream fruit flavours lifted with notes of boiled sweets and freshened by nuances of herbs. Fleshy and open, the acidity is soft and discreet, but provides a slipperiness to the mouthfeel. The volume of fruit and softness endow the palate with roundness, and the flavours carry through to a long, raspberry fruited finish. This is a bold and fruity rosé with mouthfilling flavours. Serve over the next 2 years with antipasto and fresh summer fruits on the veranda. Pinot Noir clones 115, 777 and Abel from the ‘Whenua Matua' vineyard in Upper Moutere given 24 hours skin contact and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 5.8 g/L rs. 17.5+/20 Dec 2012 RRP $21.95
