Description

"It is instantly appealing on the nose showing Gala apple, nectarine, lemon peel and strawberry characters, followed by a beautifully rounded palate that is fleshy and silky. The wine is lively and refreshing with a delightfully long juicy finish. At its best: now to 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Feb 2019

Summer Sault is the sister rosé blend to Indian Summer. The classic Provençal grape, Cinsault is a key component of this unique wine. Cinsault grapes are a rarity in New Zealand and are the primary grape variety used in the vast majority of the very best Provençal rosés. Cinsault grapes provide a wonderfully aromatic blend and this will become a special wine as Waiana continues to build out its Cinsault capacity. Summer Sault will be held on lees until December to achieve maximum complexity and texture.

Named in homage to Cinsault, the principal grape used in a style that absolutely screams “South of France”, this Rosé carries a serious caboose of character around with it. Weightier and showing more generosity than its little sister, the Indian Summer,  this Tukituki Valley-grown groover heaves with pink peppercorn, redcurrant and lashings of watermelon-infused wizardry.  Dry, punchy and ultra-lengthy on the finish, this is rich, succulent and satisfying.

Waiana Estate is the specialist Rosé label of the Plowman family who have 5.26 ha of vines on their 25 ha Tukituki Valley estate in Hawke’s Bay. The Plowmans intention is to produce Rosé that stands among the best in the county and alongside the best Provencal-styled examples. Merlot and Malbec vines were planted in 2000, and the Plowmans will use Cinsault and Grenache in future bottlings from vines recently planted to become closer to the Provencal wines. At present, the wine made is 100% Merlot, the first vintage being the 2013.
