Black Cottage Marlborough Rosé 2021 750ML

    "Pristine and instantly appealing with sweet strawberry, peach, citrus peel and floral aromas, it's juicy and lively on the palate delivering terrific fruit intensity combined with fine texture and silky mouthfeel, finishing long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jul 2021

    Pale salmon in colour, this is an attractive and stylish New Zealand Rosé full of sweet cherry, raspberry and spicy notes. Cranberry and sea breeze aromas mingle on the nose. Elegant and well-balanced, this wine shows undertones of rockmelon and suggestions of sherbet. The finish is fresh and classically dry with a lick of salt.

    Black Cottage Rosé was inspired by founder, Dave Clouston’s long stints in Corsica and the South of France where he crafted fresh, crisp, dry, salmon pink rosé wines. Here in Marlborough crops were down due to early spring frosts and a cold, wet flowering period. Summer was incredibly dry and this lead to an early harvest. The fruit quality was outstanding and wines from the 2021 vintage might just be exceptional. Treated as a white wine in the cellar, this rosé was fermented cold in stainless steel tank.

    Food Pairing: A great aperitif.

     

    ABV: 12.5%
