Vynfields Martinborough Pinot Rosé 2010

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 14-Feb-2011
The slightly sweeter style of rosé wine has immense general appeal, the residual sugar enhancing sipping on its own and working with cuisines that feature some heat and spice. Winemakers Kai Schubert and Marion Deimling gave minimal skin contact, some four hours only, for this Pinot Noir rosé to pick up its delicate, pale pink colour. Fermented to 13.9% alc., leaving 8.5 g/L rs, this has a fullish nose of strawberries, blossoms and red berries, all very pretty, but with good depth. Off-dry, slightly sweet to taste, the delicate flavours of strawberries and flowers flow gently over the palate with subtlety. The gentle sweetness enriches the fruitiness, but this is kept in check by proper acidity, and there is absolutely no cloying. This is clearly Pinot Noir and is a model of fineness. 200 cases made. 18.0-/20 Dec 2010 RRP $27.75 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
