Description

"Pale strawberry-peach pink colour with some depth, lighter edged.  The nose is softly fresh with subtle aromas of soft red berry fruit, white stonefruits and red florals along with mouthwatering mineral notes.  Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a gently concentrated core of fresh flavours of stonefruits with subtle red berries and red florals intermixed with thirst-quenching minerals.  The mouthfeel is refreshing with lacy acidity, and the wine flows along a fine-textured line, leading to a clean, brisk finish.  This is a gently concentrated dry rosé with flavours of stonefruits, red fruits and florals and subtle minerally notes on a fresh, flowing palate.  Serve as an aperitif, with antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years.  A blend of Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Tempranillo from the Havelock Hills, pressed together, and avoiding colour pick-up, fermented to 12.5% alc. and 7.0 g/L RS, the wine aged 5 months on lees" Raymond Chan, Oct 2017

"Delightfully dry and elegantly fragrant, this tasty rosé offers lifted aromas of floral, watermelon, rockmelon and strawberry on the nose, followed by a succulent palate that is nicely rounded and refreshing. The wine delivers attractive fruit flavours and smooth texture, finishing juicy and vibrant. At its best: now to 2019" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2017

Very pale colour with notes of strawberry, wet earth and violets. The palate is full bodied and rich with a soft texture and a long finish. Enjoy chilled.

A blend of Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo grapes harvested from vinyeards situated in the Havelock Hills. The grapes were picked early in the morning and pressed together quickly to minimise colour pick up. After settling the juice was fermented with a neutral yeast and aged on lees for five months. Bottled early Spring 2017.

Food Pairing: A great summer accompaniment to tapas

This is a great wine. Different to a normal Rosé. Full of flavour and depth from the red grapes used. Most enjoyable!

An easy drinking and not too sweet Rose for the money.
