ILLUMINATE ROSÉ 2022 New Zealand
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer KIM CRAWFORD
Recently listed at $22.95, this excellent low-alcohol NZ Vintages Essential 2022 Rose has been delisted by the LCBO for only $17.25 - a $5.70. savings. You can safely stiock up as it will keep for another year or so . Bright pale pink colour, the nose is fragrant, fresh and attractive with ripe, apple-melon-raspberry fruit. Dry, medium-light bodied, bright, well balanced, fresh, raspberry fruit flavours with a lingering, refreshing finish. It has 7% alcohol and 12 g/L residual sugar. Screwcap closure. Note that I personally preferred this low-alcohol version to the slightly fuller regular 2022 Rose edition with 12.5% alcohol currently at $21.95. CSPC 24084
