Brightwater Vineyards Sophie's Kiss Nelson Rosé (2021)

Bright pink, the 2021 vintage (4*) is not labelled by variety, but past releases were Pinot Noir-based. Very fresh and lively, it has vigorous, berryish, plummy flavours, a sliver of sweetness and appetising acidity. Full of youthful impact, it should be drinking well through 2022.
