Description

"This is instantly appealing on the nose showing watermelon, rockmelon, mango and lemon zest characters. The palate delivers succulent fruit flavours backed by supple mouthfeel and juicy acidity, making it light, refreshing and fabulously drinkable" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sep 2019

This dry style Rosé shows vibrant aromas of strawberries and red fruits while a hint of spice adds complexity. The wine is full flavoured, elegant and delicious reflecting the excellent summer of 2018 in Hawkes Bay.

This wine is produced from two inland Hawkes Bay Merlot vineyards selected for their ability to produce a full flavoured and elegant Rosé. The vines are grown in stony soils and managed with both shoot and bunch thinning allowing us to pick full flavoured grapes at low sugars in our pursuit of a dry style Rosé.

Individual vineyard parcels were pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery resulting in juice with little colour or tannin pick up. After settling, fermentation was conducted at cool temperatures in an effort to retain the vibrant red fruit flavours we seek in our Rosé. The ferment was stopped when almost dry, leaving a small quantity of residual sugar to balance the crisp natural acidity of this cool climate wine. Filtered soon after fermentation, the wine was then bottled to capture the essence of the 2018 harvest.

Food Pairing: This is a very versatile and delicious wine. Serve chilled and enjoy with salmon, smoked fish and meats, pork or white meat dishes. Great also as an aperitif.
