Whitehaven Marlborough Pinot Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 01-Dec-2016
Even, pale strawberry-pink colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh with very intense and tightly concentrated aromas of strawberries, cranberries and pomegranate, entwined with soft red florals and notes of confectionary, and has a fine, firm core of mouthwatering minerals. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features a bright, lively and vibrant heart of strawberry fruit along with aromatic red florals, and subtle notes of cranberries and pomegranate, lifted by herbal and confectionary elements. The mouthfeel combines fruit richness and lusciousness with thirst-quenching acidity, and the wine flows with plenty of energy and tension along a smooth line, leading to a bright, aromatic, sustained finish of strawberries and confectionary. This is a refreshing, lively, but lusciously fruited dryish rosé with strawberry, floral and confectionary flavours. Serve as an aperitif, with canapes and antipasto over the next 2 years. Pinot Noir fruit given 2-3 hours skin contact and cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 3.8 g/L RS. 18.5/20 Dec 2016 RRP $22.90
