"This arrives as a mellow, floral style with light, pastry and berry notes, delivered in lacy mode. Drink now. Screw cap" Nick Stock,

Stunning vibrant aromatics - light florals, watermelon, raspberry and nectarine. The palate is full of juicy pink grapefruit and pomegranate flavours, has lovely minerally texture and a refreshing dry finish. A gem expressing the vineyards special terroir in the Awatere Valley.

Cable Bay's carefully selected, estate owned site benefits from naturally terraced land, which leads down to the Awatere River. The region is blessed with low rainfall and low vigour soils, predominantly formed from alluvial gravel, which lend remarkable texture and minerality to the wines. The vines are also closely planted which results in lower yields of top quality fruit. We grow pinot specifically for Rosé production, a different method to that of growing for red wines.

The grapes were harvested early in the morning, and led straight into the winery. The berries were then cold soaked for a few hours to extract some lovely colour from the skins. After this maceration, the must was pressed and the clear pink juice was fermented using neutral yeast to ensure the fruit purity was upheld and expressed. After a cool fermentation, the wine was allowed to rest for 4 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling, with no fining and minimal filtration.

Cable Bay Vineyards is dedicated to producing hand-crafted wines known for their elegance and depth. Taking an Old World approach and combining it with New World techniques, Cable Bay’s vibrant wines are beautifully expressive of the sites upon which they were grown. All of Cable Bay’s vineyards are accredited with SWNZ (Sustainable Wine Growing New Zealand).

Food Pairing: Watermelon, mint and feta salad with pomegranate seeds.
