Akarua Rosé 2022
Akarua Rosé is pale pink with clear hues. Brightly aromatic with cherry blossom, rose petal, perfume, pear, peach, and strawberry. A rich entry with vivid fruits of ripe stone fruit, strawberry, raspberry, nougat, biscuit, and lime. The palate is dry, medium bodied with vibrant acidity, lovely concentration, and weight. The wine finishes long with a touch of cranberry. Recommended cellaring through 2024.
WINEMAKING : Grapes were gently pressed then followed by a long cool fermentation. The fermentation was stopped to retail a very small amount of sugar to balance the fruit weight and acidity. A small amount of Pinot Noir fermented on skins was added at the end of fermentation to add a layer of complexity and to give brightness to the colour. AGEING : Stainless steel tanks. AGEING DURATION : 5 months
With its notes of ripe stone fruits, Akarua Rose 2022 will be perfect as an aperitif or with a summer salad or to accompany your chocolate dessert. ... read more
