Tiki Estate Marlborough Rose 2016

$23.00 $20.70

A bright, candyfloss pink. Floral, aromatic scents of strawberries and confectionary with background notes of dark cherries. A well balanced wine with a luscious palate weight. Made from free run Pinot noir, this wine has a lovely soft texture balanced by moderate acidity and a small amount of residual sugar. The intensity of flavours is such that they linger on the palate well after the wine has been consumed. An ideal lunchtime wine or as an aperitif. Enjoy with fish, grilled salmon or tuna with a fresh summer salad. 2016/17 – will continue to develop for a further 5 years.

Description

REGION

100% of the fruit for this wine was sourced from our Rewa Vineyard in the Upper Wairau Valley of Marlborough.

VINTAGE

Ideal weather conditions led up to a harvest that was commenced in mid April, with fruit in perfect condition and packed with flavour. The season also provided the requisite large diurnal temperature fluctuations that maximise the varietal flavours of Marlborough Pinot Noir. The fruit for this wine was harvested in the third week of April.

WINEMAKING

Weather conditions allowed the fruit to be hung on the vines until maximum flavour levels were reached at good sugar levels. After being gently destemmed, the Pinot Noir fruit was allowed to cold soak for 48 hours to extract the beautiful colour and the essence of the fruit flavours that are the hallmarks of this wine. Only the free run juice was used and fermentation was carried out at low temperatures with yeast strains selected from the south of France for their ability to enhance rosé flavours and mouthfeel.
