KIM CRAWFORD ROSÉ 2022 New Zealand
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer KIM CRAWFORD
Today two decades after its first release, it is now based on 98% Merlot (with 2% Malbec) and drier which explains why it's Canada's #1 NZ pink. Extremely pale salmon colour, the fragrant, fresh, attractive, ripe, apple-melon-raspberry nose has some some faint mineral notes. Dry, medium to medium-light bodied, well balanced, slightly spicy, fresh, melon-apple-raspberry fruit flavours with a lingering, bright, refreshing finish. It has 12.5% alcohol and 3.5 g/L residual sugar with lot number 22249 on the lower part of the glass bottle. Screwcap closure. CSPC 650325
