BLUE GOLD MEDAL | Sydney International Top 100
FOUR STARS 18/20 Raymond Chan
SILVER MEDAL | Air NZ Wine Awards
The Awatere River Wine Co. is Louis Vavasour’s continuation of his family’s legacy of working on the Marlborough land and he has quickly developed a following for his generously framed wines. Vinted from 100% Pinot Noir, this is a lovely example of Marlborough Rosé with crisp summer fruit flavours in the strawberry and cream style. Fantastic buying with the Advintage Advantage.
Raymond Chan writes "18/20 Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has lively and refreshing, thirst-quenching flavours of strawberries and cream, raspberries and subtle cherry nuances, and lifted red florals. The fruit forms a well-concentrated heart with good linearity. The mouthfeel is enlivened by lacy acidity and the wine flows along a fine-textured phenolic thread, leading to a dry, aromatic finish of raspberries and florals. This is a vibrant, refreshing dry rosé with strawberries and cream, raspberry, cherry and floral flavours on a palate with a fine, dry line".
