Postage Stamp ‘Genevieve’ ‘View East Vineyard’ Waiheke Island Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand – Northland & Auckland
Review Date - 17-Mar-2017

17.5+/20

Bright candy-floss pink with slight purple hues and some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh with bright and pure aromas of cherries and strawberries and cream along with subtle herb nuances at the core. Lifted red florals and confectionary emerge, unfolding mouthwatering mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has juicy, elegantly mouthfilling flavours of cherries and strawberries entwined with nuances of herbs, florals, confectionary and minerals. The palate is lively with a fine-textured phenolic thread guiding the flavours with brisk acidity, providing a dry, thirst-quenching mouthfeel, leading to a long, firm finish. This is a refreshing and lively, elegantly dry rosé with cherry and strawberry flavours along with florals and soft confectionary notes on a mouthwatering palate. Serve as an aperitif, with canapes and tapas over the next 2 years. 100% Syrah, Chave clone, given 4 hours skin contact and fermented in stainless-steel to 12.7% alc. and 4 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. 17.5+/20 Mar 2017 RRP $24.95
