Description

"Bright, fresh and lively, this tasty offering shows sweet raspberry, strawberry, lemon peel and subtle spice aromas on the nose, leading to a vibrant palate that is crisp and mouth-watering. Up front and zesty with a lingering fruity finish" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2019

The 2018 vintage will be remembered as one of the warmest on record, with harvest starting roughly 10 days earlier than the long term average. With healthy vines and strong canopies, the warm weather did not impact the harvest quality, simply an unprecedented early season. Sugar levels accumulated quickly in the warm weather and our parcels ripened at different times, so “picking on flavour was key” said winemaker Tim Adams.

Like many of the New Zealand producers, poor flowering in general around the valley resulted in a lower crop, in most cases. Fortunately, Toi Toi’s regional diversity and well timed harvest minimised the impact and resulted in exceptional flavour of fruit. Grapes were picked when the flavours were at optimum, to ensure the fruit flavours were preserved in the wine. Winemakers used a select de-stemmer harvester to softly handle the fruit. Once pressed off skins, the juice was then fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains to preserve the inherent delicate fruit flavours.

Food Pairing: We recommend this bright and lively Rosé to be pair with a grilled salmon and shaved green asparagus topped with a creamy goats cheese.
