2012 TarraWarra Estate Pinot Noir Rosé

tarrawarra roseFruit is sourced from a single block grown especially for rosé. Whole bunch pressed, tank fermented then matured in older, large format French oak. No malo.

Pale salmon pink with an onion tint. Aromas of cherry blossom, strawberries, herbs and leaf matter. Maybe even some mushrooms. A touch of spice. Some sweet raspberry on entry and through the mid-palate before a savoury conclusion that has good carry. Generously fruited with a subtly rounded mouthfeel wrapped around a strong line of cranberry and blood orange accented acidity. Extremely mild tannin. I’m not even sure it’s worth mentioning. Lots to like here. 90
