McBride Silig Vineyard

McBride-Silig Vineyard Franc Rose Cabernet Franc 2014 Awatere Marlborough 12.5%
A classically styled rose with masculine Cabernet Franc aromas leading; there's a little muscle in the light red cherry, yellow and red plum and a touch of guava; a stony mineral note adds complexity and charm; an old rose note adds even further depth to an already interesting bouquet.
On the palate - a very tasty wine with a harmony of flavors reflective of the nose plus a light sweet rose note; medium+ acidity, dryish finish and a hint of tannin.
Balanced and well made - great food wine example.
4 Stars
