Mount Fishtail Sparkling Rose Central Otago NZ 2005

Very fizzy. Full-flavoured wine that is to Rose what Sparkling burgundy is to Shiraz. Quite a savoury, earthy wine with strong plum and berry flavours. The balance is good. Perhaps a tad dull but has character and gutsiness.
Tasted: Jan 2007 Closure: Plastic Average price: NZD $20 (~USD $17)
