Description

This Cellar Selection Marlborough Pinot Noir Rosé captures summer in a glass. Aromatics of freshly picked raspberries and strawberries combine with fresh herbs and delicate florals. The flavours on the palate are reminiscent of juicy watermelon and red cherries, finishing with crisp tartness of pomegranate seeds. To be enjoyed year round!

Colder weather in spring led to a longer than usual flowering season, resulting in a looser bunch structure and smaller bunches. Summer temperatures were unusually mild for Marlborough, regulated by cooler easterly breezes and light cloud cover. Intermittent autumn rains slowed ripening which meant our 2017 harvest plans had to be flexible whilst we waited for dry weather periods. Vineyard blocks expressing delicate Pinot Noir flavours and crisp natural acidity are carefully selected for this Cellar Selection wine. The warmer Wairau Valley provides fruit with riper red cherry flavours, whereas the cooler Awatere Valley vineyards take longer to ripen producing fresh herbal flavours.

All grapes are harvested in cool night temperatures to protect and enhance aromatics. Clear juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks using selected aromatic yeast strains at cool temperatures. The wine is left on yeast lees for a closely monitored period to build palate weight and texture into the wine, without compromising freshness.
