Stolen Kiss Rosé 2022 750ml
It all started with a kiss! A Stolen Kiss Rosé back in 2006, when winemaker Malcolm Rees-Francis “stole” some Pinot Noir grapes that were destined for Rockburn’s flagship Central Otago Pinot Noir and turned them into one of the country’s first premium Rosé wines. The story goes after a missed 2007 vintage there was a public outcry about the lack of Stolen Kiss, the cult wine was consistently made every year since, with the 2022 vintage marking its 16th release.
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.
