Description

  • Dry tyle
  • Crushed Summer berries
  • Wild berry
  • Vibrant pomegranate

A beautiful deep coral pink in the glass, this Pinot Rosé displays aromas of wild berry and delicate rose petal leading to a palate of crushed Summer berries, pink grapefruit and vibrant pomegranate. Finely balanced with soft phenolics and a just a touch of subtle sweetness, this vibrant and fresh Rosé has a wonderfully long, dry finish.

This Pinot Rosé is entirely sourced from our sunning Whenua Matua vineyard. The heavy soils and the predominately north facing aspect of this vineyard combined with high sunshine hours make it ideal for growing Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris grapes. The 2018/2019 growing season began with some unsettled weather over flowering, resulting in a number of small berries in the bunches (often referred to as ‘hen and chicken’). While this reduces the overall yields, the small berries add concentration and weight to the final wine. Summer was very warm and dry, with the prolonged dry spell lasting right through harvest, with grapes being able to be picked at optimal ripeness.

Blocks of both Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris grapes are harvested early from Tohu wines Whenua Matua vineyard located in the upper Moutere region of Nelson. Machine picked in batches the grapes are then transported to our winery in Marlborough, just over three hours away. Once at the winery the grapes are quickly drained and pressed into a stainless steel tanks for settling and fermentation. The ferments are carried out with selected yeast strains and at cool temperatures (around 13°C), allowing the wines to retain their freshness and vitality. Once fermented blending decisions are made with the resulting wine having the perfect balance of fruit, phenolics and acidity; with the 2019 Rosé being composed of a blend of 73 percent Pinot Noir and 27 percent Pinot Gris. After blending the resulting wine is allowed to settle before being stabilised and cross-flow filtered without fining, ready for bottling in mid-June 2019.
