Description

"Bright eye-of-the partridge colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and firm with a finely concentrated core of cherry, cranberry, pomegranate and quince fruit aromas along with subtle notes of fresh herbs, unfolding red florals and mouthwatering minerals. The aromatics grow in presence in the glass. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and vibrantly luscious, sweet flavours of red cherries, pomegranate with subtle notes of quince and cranberries, with floral elements. The fruit is lively with the sweetness balanced by thirst-quenching acidity, and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line, with energy, leading to a lingering nuanced finish. This is a fresh, finely concentrated, rich-fruited, dry rosé with cherry, pomegranate and quince fruit on a thirst-quenching palate with fine textures and fresh acidity. Serve with antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. A blend of 33% Cabernet Franc, 30% Pinot Noir, 16% Merlot, 13% Syrah and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, the fruit 70% from the ‘Kahu’, ‘Hau Ariki Marae’, ‘Di Mattina’ ‘ARV’ and ‘Craighall’ sites in Martinborough and 30% from the Noetzli Family vineyard, Maraekakaho, Hawke’s Bay, crushed and given several hours skin contact and fermented with indigenous yeasts in barrel and stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and dryness" Raymond Chan, Oct 2018

Aromatics aromas range from watermelon, pomegranate, sherbet, pink peppercorn and pecorino cheese.

Sourced 70% from our Martinborough vineyards and 30% from the Noetzli Family vineyard in Maraekakaho, Hawkes Bay. A range of fruit has been used this year: 33% Cabernet Franc, 30% Pinot Noir, 16% Merlot, 13% Syrah 10% and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon all combining to make a savoury, complex style. Barrel fermentation, time on lees and indigenous yeasts are all factors that add to the texture and breadth of flavours in this wine.

Ata Rangi's very first Rosé, aptly known as 'Summer Rosé' was launched in 1998 with a view toproducing a crisp, fruit-expressive dry style, largely intended for enjoying over the summer months. Rosé has grown from strength to strength in the intervening years, and is now considered an appropriate and versatile choice year-round. It’s an excellent 'go to' food wine, especially with lighter dishes and the increasing focus on vegetarian options. It's also a match for spicy food and, of course, a sheer-enjoyment tipple on its own.

Food Pairing: This dry Rosé would pair perfectly with platters of wild cured meats, hard cheeses and cold smoked salmon.
