Two Rivers ‘Isle of Beauty’ Marlborough Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Oct-2017
Bright, very pale salmon-pink colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is delicate with ethereal aromas of watermelon, quince, strawberries and pomegranate with red floral nuances, and hints of thirst-quenching minerals. The aromatics are pure, subtle and intricate, with finesse and intensity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is bright and refreshingly vibrant with delicate and finely intense flavours of watermelon, strawberries and quince. This has very good depth and the mouthfeel has vitality and energy, with refreshing, lacy and slippery acidity. The wine flows smoothly along a very fine line leading to a long, lingering zesty finish with watermelon and red floral notes. This is a refreshing, delicately fruited dry rosé with watermelon, strawberry and quince flavours on a slippery, mouthwatering palate. It is a nod to the Provencal style. Serve as an aperitif, with canapes, seafood and antipasto over the next 2 years. Pinot Noir fruit from the ‘Saint Maur’ vineyard in the Southern Valley, vines 14 y.o., cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 2.4 g/L RS, the wine spending 3 months on lees. 2,200 cases made. 18.5+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $24.00
