Description

This pretty Rosé has an enticing bouquet of peachy, floral characters. The palate shows notes of pear and ripe red berries, with a crisp and refreshing finish.

Along the length of our North and South Islands, the cool clear waters of the Pacific Ocean carve deep natural coves into the landscape. Intriguing for its unrivalled tranquillity, this spectacular eastern coastline of New Zealand is also renowned for its exceptional wines. In these beautiful, but harsh, conditions our vines struggle for survival, producing low yields of high quality fruit with concentrated flavours.

The growing season in Marlborough started out warm and dry, resulting in very 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 through the warm growing season. These warmer conditions also meant harvest started around two weeks earlier than the previous year and resulted in a Rosé with lifted aromatics and concentrated mouthfeel.

The parcels of fruit that created this Rosé were individually harvested over a ten day period. 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: Enjoy with goat’s cheese, light summer salads, or your favourite shellfish.
