Volcanic Hills Martinborough Rosé 2015

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 19-Dec-2015
Pinot Noir fruit from the ‘Ashwell’ vineyard, Martinborough, cool-fermented in tank with 25% indigenous yeast fermented in barrel to 12.0% alc. and 2.5 g/L RS. Bright strawberry colour with some depth, a little paler on the rim. This has a full, deep nose with a good core of savoury red berry, quince and pomegranate fruit aroma, along with nuances of strawberry and raspberry compote. The aromas are harmoniously entwined and smoothly presented. Dry to taste and light-bodied, the fruit flavours of red berry fruits, quince and pomegranate are melded with savoury strawberries, raspberries and herb notes. The mouthfeel is soft-textured with subtle grip and line, balanced by fresh, near slippery acidity. The flavours carry through to a moderately long finish of pomegranate and quince. This is a light and gently refreshing, savoury dry rosé with soft textures and balanced acidity. Match with canapes, tapas and antipasto over the next 2 years. 17.0/20 Dec 2015 RRP $27.95
