A charming, brightly aromatic example of the pink phenomenon.
Lobster Reef Marlborough Rose 2019
Raspberry, fruit-forward, just-dry, satisfying
Pinot Rose this is modern, blended Rose with parcels from both heartland Wairau and the cooler Awatere. A nose-full of raspberry, orange zest and strawberry mousse with an attractive leafy note. Just-dry there is a firm line of tannin balanced by lots of fruit weight without the sweetness, finishing with a lovely slippery fullness. Satisfying, modern, food wine.
"Bright and youthfully appealing, the wine shows crunchy apple, raspberry, rockmelon and floral aromas on the nose, followed by a finely textured palate that is crisp and linear. A zesty offering showing pristine fruit flavours and refreshing acidity. At its best: now to 2021." - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
