Description

  • Watermelon
  • Pomegranate
  • Savoury spice
  • Dry style

"Made with Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot and Syrah - Elegant and layered bouquet with aromas of rose and red melon, pink and red apple skin, strawberry and crushed rock. A whisper of spice and lees. Crisp and dry on the palate with flavours that reflect the nose, light, fine chalky tannin moment, roses, cherry and red apple. A balanced and well made wine ready for drink today and through Summer 2021" Cameron Douglas, MS, Oct 2019

Aromatics for this beautiful Rosé range from watermelon, pomegranate, sherbet, pink peppercorn and pecorino cheese. 

Sourced 64% from the winemakers Martinborough vineyards and 36% from the Craggy Range vineyard in Gimblett Gravels, Hawkes Bay. A range of fruit has been used this year: 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 16% Pinot Noir, 16% Syrah and 4% Cabernet Franc all combining to make a savoury, complex style. Barrel fermentation, time on lees and indigenous yeasts are all factors that add to the texture and breadth of flavours in this wine.

Fruit for this wine was crushed and held for several hours on skins to enhance colour and flavours. Juice is pressed, settled, then fermented in barrels and small stainless-steel tanks.

Food Pairing: This is a dry Rosé that on tasting made us all want platters of wild cured meats, hard cheeses and cold smoked salmon! Ideal for current drinking and over 1-3 years from the vintage.
