Review Date - 20-Sep-2016

18.5+/20

Bright, even pink colour with slight purple hues. The nose is very fresh and elegant with bright and fragrant aromas of strawberries with gentle raspberry notes, along with cranberry, watermelon, herb and lifted red floral detail, unfolding a suggestion of confectionary. This is beautifully poised and delicate with an underlying, concentrated core. Dryish to taste and medium bodied, the palate is refreshingly poised with vibrant and aromatic fruit flavours of strawberries and subtle raspberry notes, along with cranberries, watermelon and red florals. The mouthfeel is juicy and delicately refreshing with a very refined texture, the fruit enlivened by crisp acidity. This is beautifully balanced, the wine delicately rich and aromatic, leading to a mouthwatering, dry, lingering finish. The is a beautifully poised and refreshing dry rosé with strawberry, raspberry and watermelon flavours and a fine-featured mouthfeel. Serve as an aperitif and with canapes over the next 2 years. Pinot Noir fruit, clones Abel and 115, given three hours on skins and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 6 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. 18.5+/20 Sep 2016 RRP $22.85
