Tono Hawke’s Bay Rosado 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 21-Nov-2016
Bright, pale pink colour with a little depth and light purple hues on the rim. The nose is finely presented and refreshing with bright and aromatic, fragrant cherry and strawberry fruit, along with notes of watermelon, red florals and subtle confectionary notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, this has a tightly bound core of strawberries and cherries, along with lifted red florals and hints of confectionary. The fruit has sweetness, and is balanced by light, dry phenolic textures, and the palate is enlivened by mouthwatering, lacy acidity that lends a firm line. The fruit richness is carried positively to a long, lingering, well-concentrated finish of cherries and strawberries. This is a tightly bound, finely concentrated and firm dry rosé with balancing phenolics and mouthwatering acidity. Serve as an aperitif, with antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. A blend of Tempranillo and Syrah, with 5% Muscat, from the ‘Lyons’, ‘Cranwell’, Stewart’, Matthills’ and ‘Craft Farm’ sites in Havelock North and Bridge Pa, WBP and tank-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 6.0 g/L RS. 18.0+/20 Nov 2016 RRP $18.95
