Hawkshead Central Otago Rosé (2019)

The 2019 vintage (4.5*) is ‘a sexy little number’, according to the back label. Based entirely on Pinot Noir, it is pink, with a hint of orange. Fresh and vivacious, it is full-bodied, with strong strawberry, apricot and spice flavours, and a very harmonious, dry (3 grams/litre residual sugar), appetisingly crisp finish. Tasted in mid 2020, it’s drinking well now.
