93 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
A lovely expression of finely crafted, dry pinot noir rosé from a producer traditionally associated with the white table cloth, fine dining scene. This is a fresh style with zingy red fruits and lifted, creamy acidity, Some very subtle, seasoned oak influence adds texture and further savoury notes - but this lovely wine is all about the crisp fruit flavours. Recommended.
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Sweet red cherry, ripe cranberry, roses and mineral highlight the complexity this wine has to offer. These scents translate to the palate seamlessly with a mineral core then red berry fruit flavours, spice and super fine tannins. Salivating and dry, a wine for summer 2022 drinking and through 2024."
The winery writes "Q Rose is crafted from 100% Pinot Noir. Seductive pink in colour, the aromas of watermelon, white flowers and wild forest fruits are powerful and long lasting. We have fermented a portion in French oak barriques giving the palate great concentration and texture. A dry style Rose making for a highly gastronomic wine."
Lovely Summer drop
Enjoyed this lovely Rose at Spqr in Ponsonby with friends. Medium dry and easy drinking with soft berry flavor and an elegant smooth finish. Very impressed!
