Moana Park Growers Hawkes Bay Rose (2020)
A single vineyard wine, the fruit from Gimblett Road, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc., and just off dryness, the wine bottled without oak contact. Full, bright electric-salmon colour with light blood-orange hues, lighter on edge. The nose is richly packed with dense and deep aromas of ripe red berries, lifted with exotic florals and harmoniously melded with pink-grapefruit and sweet wild strawberry notes.
Off-Dry and full-bodied, soft and rounded, rich fruit flavours of ripe exotic tropical fruits, berries, zest and mint form a concentrated core. The mouthfeel is weighty, decadent and plush, driven by plenty of alcohol power, with fresh acidity adding to the breadth on the palate. As the wine flows, ethereal aromatic nuances blossom on the finish. This is a soft and densely packed, exotic Rose. Match with fresh fish and colourful fare over the next 3+ years.
