Whitehaven Pinot Noir Rosé 2020

From Marlborough, and this is another of those beautifully coloured 2020 vintage rosés that are just fabulous to look at in the glass and bottle. The colour is a bright, pale salmon and it just invites you in. A perfume of cranberry, watermelon and orange blossom leads into a generous palate of strawberry, white peach and rosehip. Dry, with just a splash of residual sugar – but chock full of fruit sweetness and it has a plush rounded texture. Vibrant acidity and a lick of oyster shell towards the finish, which is long and elegant. 90pts.
