Hancock and Sons
Hancock & Sons Lillies Rosé 2018 Hawkes Bay
A fresh and lively bouquet with aromas of rose and saffron, peach and red apple with a light core of dry stone minerality. Just dry on the palate with a whisper of sweetness, but also very fruity; crisp and refreshing with flavours that mirror the nose. Balanced and well made with a fine mealy texture and moderate finish. Drink now and through 2020.
In 1861 the sailing ship ‘Lillies’ left St Austell in Cornwall bound for Adelaide. Aboard were the great-great-grandparents of John Hancock - the architect and senior winemaker for Hancock & Sons.
