Description

"Soft, creamy rosé, with a hint of sweetness and flavours suggesting crushed strawberry, raspberry and watermelon. Flattered by a gentle, silken texture. Charming wine - deliciously drinkable" Bob Campbell, MW, The Real Review, Oct 2019

"Lovely fragrant, floral and fruity aromas of Rosé  with suggestions of strawberry and cranberry, red plum and red flowers. Just dry on the palate with flavours of red berry fruits and plum, red flowers, medium+ acidity, balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2021" Cameron Douglas, Oct 2019

"It is instantly appealing on the nose showing Gala apple, rockmelon, sweet raspberry and floral characters, leading to a pristine palate that is elegantly weighted and lingering. The wine offers terrific fruit focus and concentration, finishing fabulously long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sep 2019

"Bright pink, this fresh, floral rosé is a single-vineyard wine, hand-harvested at Gibbston.  Full of drink-young charm, it is vivacious, with strong, vibrant, strawberry and spice flavours, crisp and harmonious" Winestate, 2019

The 2019 Pinot Noir Rosé has a beautiful pale pink hue that hints at the delicious array of red fruit aromas that will unfold in the glass. Intensely aromatic, the floral notes and bright red fruit sing beautifully of “classic” Central Otago Rosé. Enticing aromas of cherry, wild strawberry, and raspberry are carried long on the palate by the incredible creamy texture. It is a dry style Rosé with great concentration and sweet red fruit that is perfectly balanced by vibrant acidity which is the hallmark of wines from Gibbston and a result of our decision to pick early. With each new vintage, we set out to make a complex Rosé that is balanced and engaging - truly a kaleidoscope for the senses.

The 2018 - 2019 growing season returned to more classic conditions with warm (but not hot) days and cool nights. Yields were normal with minimal disease pressure and they had the benefit, particularly in Gibbston, of the classic long hang time. The cool nights helped retain the perfect level of acidity for Rosé.

The fruit for the 2019 Wild Earth Pinot Noir Rosé comes from our favourite vineyard for making Pinot Noir Rosé in Central Otago. This 20+ year old vineyard in Gibbston is purposefully selected for its consistent ability to produce complex, balanced Rosé that is fresh and delicious. The hand harvested grapes were picked later in April and were left on skins for 2 days before pressing in order to extract the beautiful pink hue. The juice was fermented at cooler temperatures in a stainless-steel tank to retain freshness.

Another fabulous Pinot Noir Rose from the Gibbston Valley

Bought for my wife. Not bought before so was going in blind. She loved it. Very full and fruity. Not dry (which is what she likes). Better than other brands she usually consumes
