Babydolls are small sheep barely reaching your knees, so unbable to reach the grapes, and are Yealands' happy little vineyard helpers...

This pretty light-peach coloured Rosé has the most enticing bouquet of pomegranate, fresh strawberries and honeysuckle. A juicy, rich palate warmed with flavours of strawberry
shortcake, and focused by well-balanced acidity.

The growing season in Marlborough started out warm and dry, resulting in even flowering and ultimately balanced vines with the right amount of crop to get them through to harvest. The warm weather continued through Spring and Summer, with periodic rains which kept the vines hydrated throughout the growing season. These warmer conditions also meant harvest started around two weeks earlier than the previous year and resulted in a Rosé that is filled with lifted aromatics and a beautiful concentrated mouthfeel.

The parcels of fruit that created this Pinot Rosé were individually harvested over a period of two weeks. The fruit was crushed, destemmed, briefly soaked and then gently pressed. The juice was cold settled for 48 hours then racked prior to a long cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to capture bright, fresh fruit characters. Each parcel was fermented separately with a range of yeasts to build complexity and structure. Following fermentation the wine was blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

Food Pairing: Try it with some creamy goats cheese, a light summer salad, or your favourite shellfish.
