Description

This dry style Rosé is widely regarded as New Zealand's premium Rosé having won many awards since its first vintage in 1991. It is an excellent choice with most food styles or as an aperitif. Aroma's of strawberry, red currants predominate in the full flavoured, medium bodied wine.

This wine is produced from two cooler inland Hawkes Bay Merlot vineyards, each selected for its ability to produce a full flavoured and elegant Rosé. The vines are grown on stony river terraces and managed intensively with both shoot and bunch thinning practised, allowing us to pick fully ripened grapes at low sugars in our pursuit of an elegant and dry styled Rosé.

The individual vineyard parcels were pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery resulting in juice with little colour or tannin. After settling bright the fermentation was conducted at cool temperatures to capture the vibrant red fruit flavours we seek in our Esk Valley Rosé. The ferment was stopped when almost dry, leaving a small quantity of residual sugar to balance the natural acidity. The wine was left on yeast lees and stirred until bottling in August 2018.

Food Pairing: Serve chilled with salmon, smoked fish, cured meats, pork or white meat dishes and summer salads. Also great as an aperitif.
