Misha’s Vineyard ‘The Soloist’ Central Otago Pinot Rosé 2018

Rose from New Zealand – Otago
Review Date - 01-Oct-2018


Bright, light cerise-pink colour with some depth, a little lighter on the rim with slight peach hues. The nose is bright and vibrant with up-front fragrant aromas of strawberries and raspberries and cream entwined with red florals and vivid confectionary notes, along with subtle fresh fermentation esters. The core has a thread of mouthwatering minerality, and the nose is sensationally up-front. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has intense aromatic aromas of raspberries and cream with bright and vibrant red florals, lifted confectionary notes and a suggestion of esters. The fruit forms a tight and concentrated core and has very good linearity, flowing along a very fine-textured line with thirst-quenching acidity enlivening the palate and providing energy. The flavours lead to a long and sustained finish. This is a bright and vibrant, up-front aromatic dry rosé with raspberry, floral and confectionary notes on a fine-textured palate with linearity and freshness. Match with dim sum and Asian fare, or antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. A blend of clones, 33% 114, 32% 4, 25% 6 and 10% 5, given one day of skin contact and cool fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS. 515 dozen made. 19.0-/20 Oct 2018 RRP $27.00
