Tyson Stelzer's - Australian Sparkling Wine Report 2016
Hanging Rock Macedon Rosé NV $39
Macedon | DIAM | 12% alcohol | Drink 2016
Derived from the same glorious base as all Hanging Rock sparkling wines, dating from 1987, matured for an average of four years on lees in old barrels, with a touch of pinot noir added at dosage for colour. The result is a pretty, medium salmon pink hue and aromas of red cherries, poached strawberries and pink pepper, heralding a rosé of characterful fruit expression and fine tannin structure. Old oak maturation has been well handled, subtly contributing texture and gentle toasty complexity without disrupting fruit purity. 6g/L dosage is well integrated on a long finish.
