Description

Pink is the new black, Rose is where it’s at.  This wee gem is a stellar discovery, made by one of our fave Hawke’s Bay family owned wine producers.  Summer time, anytime, when a deal's this good it’s Rose all the time!

"It is instantly appealing on the nose displaying rockmelon, red apple and watermelon characters with a touch of floral lift. The palate delivers excellent fruit intensity and vibrancy, nicely structured by refreshing acidity. The wine is up front and likable, and offers fabulous drinking. At its best: now to 2018" Sam Kim Wine Orbit, Oct 2016

"Bright, pale cerise-pink colour with some depth and light purple hues on the rim. The nose is softly fresh and delicate with aromas of strawberries and watermelon with nuances of savoury red florals and subtle notes of confectionary adding lift. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses soft flavours of strawberries melded harmoniously with watermelon, subtle herb and red floral elements, forming a gently concentrated core. The mouthfeel has some lusciousness with fine-textures and balancing, light acidity lending freshness. The flavours flow smoothly, revealing confectionary notes, leading to a dry, light-textured, mouthwatering finish. This is a soft, harmonious dry rosé with light strawberry, watermelon, herb and floral flavours and subtle confectionary notes, and a dry, thirst-quenching finish. Serve as an aperitif, with canapes, and with Asian cuisine over the next 2 years. Made from Merlot fruit from the Bridge Pa Triangle, pressed off and with saignee juice, cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 4.1 g/L RS" Raymond Chan, Oct 2016

Crushed ripe berry fruit aromas with sweet plum and strawberry notes. The palate is vibrant with berry and citrus flavours. Drink it young and lightly chilled with smoked salmon, soft white cheese or a summer salad.

Considering I had not read the information correctly and thought I was buying a Merlot we are very pleased with the Rose and with the weather warming (hopefully) think it's very good value

This is actually a Pinot Noir Rose and quite dry to the pallet.

Colleen - member since Jul 2009
