The Hunting Lodge Expressions Delicate Rosé 2019
Gold, scored 95 points
Floral, lemon zest
On the site beside where New Zealand's first Sauvignon Blanc grapes were commercially grown, the Sutton Family have long connections with Waimauku and the iconic Hunting Lodge restaurant. With a strong focus on sustainability, this Hawke’s Bay wine speaks loudly of a sense of place and belonging. As the name suggests, this Rosé is delicate, floral and very fragrant. Flavours of delicate red fruits, lemon zest with crisp mouth-watering acidity and a long intense finish.
A very underrated food wine, this is ideal with picnics, antipasti or a light lunch. Great with pre-dinner nibbles, pizza and your favourite pasta dish. Try with Asian inspired foods, cheese, Japanese curries and Mexican dishes.
