Black Cottage Rosé 2020

$17.49

An attractive, fresh and stylish Pinot Noir dominant rosé, full of Rainier cherry flavours and granite notes. Cranberry, watermelon and sea breeze aromas mingle on the nose. Elegant and well-balanced, this wine shows undertones of tamarillo, honeydew melon, oyster shell and subtle liquorish notes. The finish is clean and dry with a lick of salt.

Notes

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 the 2020 season was warm and dry with cool nights which led to good acid levels. The season produced pristine fruit with beautifully ripe flavours. Treated as a white wine in the cellar, this rosé had the added benefit of eight weeks on light yeast lees, increasing the texture and mineral notes.
