2022 Stolen Kiss Rosé (Cancelled Export / E.O.Vintage)
RRP $̶3̶2̶.̶0̶0̶ (now $29.00) / 750ml
The sweetly frivolous and fruity side of Central Otago Pinot Noir is bound up in this bottle of Stolen Kiss rosé; once unleashed into your glass its candy-floss and crème-brûlée aromas shall sashay into a flirtatious toffee-apple and simmering strawberry palate smeared with cherry lip-gloss; most fun to drink chilled on sultry summer afternoons and evenings.
Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews - 5 Stars, 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts)
Bright, even, pale blush pink. The nose is softly full, packed with raspberry, pear, white floral and a hint of spice. Medium-light bodied, dry to taste, the wine is clean and refreshing with subtle floral and spice underlying pear, watermelon, and raspberry. The mouthfeel is crisp with a touch of creamy plushness; lively acidity flows elegantly with dusty phenolics. This is the driest Stolen Kiss to date, crisp and delicate with refreshing acidity, floral feature and a lush background of juicy fruit. Serve as an aperitif or match with sushi over the next 2-3 years. Sep 2022 RRP $32
