Westcott Estate Delphine Rosé 2012

Michelle reviewed this wine:

The delicate salmon colour is the beautiful lead into a sophisticated, yet refreshing, rosé wine. The nose has light red fruit and rose floral aromas. Fresh strawberries, raspberries and red cherry burst through in the flavours with a nice crisp mouthfeel. This is a dry, classy rosé well worth sipping.

This is an excellent value rosé. It has a beautiful salmon colour and greets you with aromas of fresh red fruit that follow through on the flavours. It is refreshing and dry and would be great as a sipper or with strawberry salad.

Nice notes of tropical fruit, marmalade, citrus and honey on the nose and palate. Don't let the "Demi-sec" scare you. This is slightly off-dry with a nice sweet touch of honey as an aftertaste. I had it with chicken and vegetables cooked in maple sugar and it made for a great match.

If you're only opening this wine now, like I did, you will be rewarded for your patience. The tannins have softened and produce a silky balance to the ripe dark berries and dark chocolate flavours. Excellent wine.

This is a must buy if you like New World Pinot Noir. It's got that perfect balance between fresh fruit, yet with a subdued tartness of a pinot, that makes it an approachable wine, good with food or without!
