This is excellent Wairarapa Rosé - dry and initially delicate but with a gorgeous mid-palate that introduces textbook strawberry and cream flavours that elevate the mouthfeel and bring a sense of generosity to the party. Don't be concerned, for any reason, that this 2019 has a couple of years on it. It's as fresh and vibrant as the day it was bottled and will put an immediate smile on the face of anyone who enjoys quality New Zealand Rosé. We'll stake our reputation on that.
Outstanding value at $11.99 on case buys and this wonderful release is a perfect lunchtime partner or aperitif.
The 2019 is a blend of 44% Pinot Noir, 30% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc.
The winery writes "Fresh strawberries and raspberries burst from the glass mingled with layers of vanilla and white chocolate, subtle floral notes and a sophisticated mineral streak. A generous core of berry fruit gives way to an elegant acid structure, length and balance."
Sam Kim writes "Beautifully poised and elegant, the wine shows nectarine, sweet raspberry, lemon peel and subtle savoury notes, together with finely focused palate displaying linear mouthfeel and excellent persistency. Crisp-dry and immediately appealing. At its best now to 2023."
Bob Campbell MW writes "A blend of merlot, cabernet franc and pinot noir. Delicate flavours of cherry, rose petal and watermelon. Soft-textured rosé with a hint of sweetness balanced by fruity acidity. A charming wine."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Golden peach hues and very bright appearance lead to aromas and flavours of apple and apricot, saffron and peach, roses and a soft silty mineral core. Crisp and refreshing with a light saline note, balanced, well made and ready to drink from day of purchase."
