Terra Sancta Bannockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir Rosé (2020)

From one vintage to the next, this is one of the country's leading rosés. The 2020 vintage (5*) was partly handled in tanks, but over 60 per cent of the blend (the highest proportion yet) was fermented with indigenous yeasts in old oak barrels. Bright pink, it is fresh, vibrant and full-bodied, with unusually deep watermelon, strawberry and spice flavours, a distinct touch of complexity, and a very finely poised, dryish (5.4 grams/litre of residual sugar), long finish. Best drinking mid-2021+.
