Cooper’s Hawk Pinot Noir Rosé 2013 Review

5.00 overall score

Tasting Notes:
At Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards we take pride in the success and quality of our award winning Rosé wines. Here we offer a second style that will appeal to those who prefer a dry wine.

We process our Rosé in the Blanc de Nuits style, where red grapes are pressed early to a natural pink colour. We chose to dedicate high quality, hand harvested Pinot Noir to making a world class Rosé unlike any other. You be the judge.

Enjoy chilled with crusty bread, light cheeses and cured meats for an extra enjoyable experience. Quality Rosé doesn’t get any finer than this!

Oxley Estate Rosé 2013 Review

Mon 26, May. 14
1 Reviews
0 Reviews
3.00 overall score

Winemaker’s Notes:
Essex County’s own grape varieties make up Oxley’s Rose. The HGs (stands for Harrow Graft) are hearty and sustainable – true ambassadors of our terroir. Our Rose presents charming coral and bright copper colors, followed by fresh aromas of ripe strawberry, anise and tangerine peel. The palate is delightfully off-dry … a bit of sweetness delivers the juicy berries and citrus flavors over the long, electric finish. Pair with tempura shrimp with sea salt or bbq chorizo sausage and melon..

3.67 overall score

Winemaker’s Notes:
The nose is an enticing blend of ripe strawberries, tangerine and red licorice, with a hint of fresh basil on the edge. The mouth feel is daring… juicy, slightly sweet red berries are balanced by a lively zip of acidity and tangy lemon zest and pink grapefruit. This is a delectably versatile food wine.
