Two Rivers Isle of Beauty Rosé 2020, Marlborough

Rosé from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 19-Aug-2020
Bright, light salmon-pink with a tinge of rose-gold, even throughout. The bouquet is elegant with subtleties of flower petals, honeydew melon, cranberries and fresh oregano. Light-bodied, dry to taste, amalgam flavours of watermelon, honeydew melon, cranberries, sherbet, melded with wild herbs and green peppercorn. The fruit flavours are well-proportioned with sweet and sour fruit, pure and vibrant; balanced lacy acidity flows with vitality, unveiling deep fragrances of flower petals, wild herbs, sea salt to linearity. The mouthfeel is smooth and light with vibrancy, a light note of green peppercorn is lifting and appealing. This is a light, and crisp dry rose with attractive fruit flavours, balanced acidity and freshness, lingers with subtle floral, herbs and sea salt. Serve as an aperitif over the next 2-3 years. Fermented cold to 12.5% alc, 1.3 g/l RS. Aged for 10 weeks in stainless steel and concrete egg. 18.5/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $24
