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"
