"Delivering bright fruit intensity and refreshing acidity" Wine Orbit

A delightful lighter alcohol option!

For a pairing that is as interesting as it is successful put the zesty feijoa and lime flavours of this rosé with the creamy texture and lively combination of burrata, watermelon and pickled fennel

Description

"Vibrant and fragrant, the nicely lifted bouquet shows feijoa, green rockmelon, lime zest and watermelon characters. It is juicy and lively on the palate, and delivers bright fruit intensity and refreshing acidity, leading to a lingering crisp finish. The wine offers classic sauvignon flavours and lively mouthfeel. At its best: now to 2018." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit. June 2017.

A blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Malbec grape varieties which were selected from vineyards sites capable of reaching optimum flavour intensity.
Aromas of ripe red cherries and hints of ripe blackcurrant. The palate displays fresh flavours of tropical passionfruit, strawberries and pomegranate. Perfectly balanced with fine acidity a a long lingering finish.

Grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the night in order to retain fresh fruit flavours. They spent just a few hours on skins to extract the soft pink colour, then carefully pressed.  After settling the juice was fermented in 100 per cent stainless steel at cooler temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. 
Ideal served chilled on a warm summer’s day with grilled fish and a fresh summer salad.

This wine is perfect for drinking now or best consumed within the next two years.

A real favourite of mine - clean, subtle flavours - very smooth on the palate - a treasure!

I have been purchasing this wine for a few years now, and it never fails to please! No matter the vintage, each bottle delivers a 'just right' level of sweetness and dryness...and it continues to hold its own (and some) against bigger names, with bigger price points - and it was free freight.

Would buy again

I've had this one before and it's a real winner as the weather lightens and we celebrate a sunset (hopefully) with a light fruity blushing Rose. Yummy.
