Wooing Tree Tickled Pink Rose

Cracka Review

100% Pinot Noir grapes were late harvested on 28th April 2011 allowing them time to ripen fully and produce a considerable amount of sugar. The juice was fermented in stainless steel to retain the varietal and fruit characteristics. The ferment was then stopped to retain a residual sugar of 100g/l. It has attractive aromas of peaches, raspberry and rhubarb crumble on the nose. Intense flavours of peaches and hints of oranges and toffee apples show on the palate, with a great body and lingering finish. This wine is a perfect match with desserts or cheeses and can be enjoyed on its own.

Wooing Tree Tickled Pink Rose

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
The 2010 vintage, from estate-grown Pinot Noir, was hand-picked in the Cromwell Basin, Central Otago, and 20 per cent was fermented in seasoned French oak casks. Pale pink, it is mouthfilling, with strong strawberry, spice and peach flavours and a slightly creamy texture. The 2011 is pale pink, with fresh strawberry, peach and slight apricot flavours, smooth, slightly sweet and rich.

Forget the tree, this is Wooing Rose! With its delicate watermelon and guava flavours, soft, supple finish and finely textured restraint, you're sure to score! Lucked out this time? You can always finish the bottle yourself. Win-win!

Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
The 2007 vintage was made from Pinot Noir, estate-grown and hand-picked at 24 brix in the Cromwell Basin, Central Otago. Made without oak, it is pink-hued, with good depth of strawberryish, slightly spicy and earthy flavours, dryish (6.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), very fresh and vibrant.
