Wairau River Marlborough Pinot Noir Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Aug-2016
Bright, pale candy-floss pink with a suggestion of purple, pale on rim. The nose is fresh and brightly aromatic with aromas of strawberries and soft-red florals entwined with a fine layer of lifted confectionary notes and fermentation esters. The aromas build in depth and intensity in the glass. Off-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, elegantly concentrated flavours of strawberries and lifted confectionary are enhanced by floral and esters notes. The fruit is fresh and vibrant and gently fills the mouth. Soft acidity and gentle textures lend a mouthwatering line and the strawberry and confectionary flavours carry to a lingering finish. This is an elegant, up-front, aromatic and lifted dryish rosé with strawberry and confectionary flavours. Serve as an aperitif and on the veranda with canapes over the next 2 years. Made from Pinot Noir fruit from the ‘Rapaura’, ‘Sam Rose’, ‘Crusher’ and ‘Home’ vineyards, and given gentle maceration on skins and fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 7.9 g/L RS. 17.0+/20 Aug 2016 RRP $20.00
