Mondillo Rosé 2018

$28.00
Vendor: Mondillo

Available

A lusciously refreshing wine with aromas of strawberry, raspberry and watermelon combined with a cherry finish.

Mondillo Rosé contains 100% Pinot Noir grapes from a defined parcel of the vineyard grown specifically for our Rosé. The single clone selected offers this wine red fruit flavours with a mid palate lusciousness and fruit sweetness. Left on the skins for a few days to establish the vibrant cerise-pink colour. The 2018 Central Otago growing season started with a warm spring, followed by the hottest January on record. The calm, hot temperatures continued throughout the summer producing the earliest harvest we had ever experienced.

Drink/Cellar: Now until 2020

Perfect for any event, celebration or dinner party over the summer months. Enjoy with salads, grilled prawns, salmon, risotto, rock melon & prosciutto! Serve chilled.

Raymond Chan, 18.5/20 - Five Stars

"Bright, light cerise-pink colour with some depth and pale purple hues on the rim. The nose is softly fresh and bright with good volume of raspberries and cream with fragrant dark-red florals and a subtle amalgam of mouthwatering herbs and confectionary. The aromatics show good depth and intensity, growing with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-fullish bodied, the palate has a rich and softly rounded core with concentrated flavours of raspberries and cream with red florals, a hint of red liquorice, with subtle suggestions of confectionary. The palate is vibrant and lively, with fresh, lacy, thirst-quenching acidity balancing the gentle sweetness and fruit richness. The wine flows smoothly with good vitality to a long, lingering, finely concentrated finish. This is a fine and smoothly concentrated dryish rosé with raspberries and cream, florals and hints of confectionary with excellent vitality.  www.raymondchanwinereviews.co.nz"

 

Michael Cooper, November 2018

The very lively 2018 vintage was made from 100% Pinot Noir, estate-grown at Bendigo. Freshly scented, with a pink/pale red hue, it is full-bodied and vibrantly fruity, with strong, red berry and watermelon flavours, a sliver of sweetness (7grams/litre residual sugar), appetizing acidity and a smooth finish. Delicious young.  www.michaelcooper.co.nz
