RAYMOND CHAN’S THOUGHTS ON OUR 2017 MARLBOROUGH PINOT GRIS & ROSÉ

Mahi Marlborough Rosé 2017 4 stars 18.0/20 Bright, light strawberry colour with some depth, lighter on the rim.  The nose is elegant and delicately expressed with gentle but positive aromas of strawberries and cream, pomegranate and red florals, along with thirst-quenching mineral hints.  This has ethereal perfumes.  Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a softly concentrated core with lively and mouthwatering strawberry and cream fruit with notes of cranberries, pomegranate and red florals.  The flavours are up-front and the palate flows along a light-textured phenolic line with balancing dryness.  The acidity balances and enlivens the mouthfeel, and the wine carries to a long finish with floral nuances and mouthwatering minerals.  This is a softly concentrated, lively and mouthwatering rosé with flavours of strawberries and cream, pomegranate and cranberries with red floral lift, on a soft-textured palate.  Serve as an aperitif and with antipasto over the next 2 years.  100% Pinot Noir fruit from ‘Ward Farm’, given two and a half hours skin contact and cool-fermented to 12.2% alc. and < 1 g/L RS.
