Vidal ‘Reserve’ Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2018

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 08-Aug-2018
Bright, pale pink colour with slight purple hues and some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly fresh with light, but positive aromas of strawberries and cherries along with nuances of strawberries and cream and subtle, thirst-quenching earthy and mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a vibrant and intense core of cherry and strawberry fruit, entwined with red florals and a steely, mineral note. The palate is fresh, lively and slippery, flowing along a fine-textured line with crisp acidity providing energy, leading to a soft, dry, but fruit-expressive finish. This is a bright and vibrant dry rosé with cherry and strawberry flavours with florals and minerals on a slippery, refreshing palate. Serve as an aperitif, with antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. A blend of 94% Merlot from the ‘Joseph Soler’ vineyard with 5% Pinot Noir and 1% Syrah, given a short period of skin contact and cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 4.2 g/L RS, the wine aged 4 months in tank. 18.0-/20 Aug 2018 RRP $19.99
