Hitchen Road Pinotage Rosé 2010

I was given this as a gift recently and my interest levels spiked - New Zealand Pinotage! We don't see much Pinotage on Australian shores although there are small pockets of it around the place. The best example would be the Granite Belt's Mark Ravenscroft who sells out of production soon after release each year.

I'm reliably informed wines at Hitchen Road are all estate grown and produced in small batches whilst also relatively inexpensive too.

Ochre and copper in appearance, this bone dry Rosé exhibits aromas of cranberries, dried red fruits, mandarin peel and tangelo. Nicely balanced those dried red fruits and mandarin peel kick on to a long and satisfying finish. Top ups come with ease.
