Description

  • Enticing cream
  • Fresh acidity

This elegant, deep salmon coloured Rosé has an enticing bouquet of vibrant red berries and cream. Luscious ripe strawberry and raspberry flavours on the palate are complemented with minerality and fresh acidity. Enjoy now, or cellar 2-4 years.

The 2019 growing season in Marlborough was a hot and dry one. We received small amounts of rain around the end of December, but then no further until late February. These rain events had very little impact on soil moisture levels, but helped to replenish the rivers, setting up nicely to see through to harvest. Vintage started in mid-March and it provided incredibly stable weather. This meant blocks could be picked at their optimum ripeness, and resulted in a Rosé that was full of fruit flavours in the red berry spectrum, with vibrancy, purity and structure.

The Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours. To make this Pinot Noir Rosé, fruit was picked early to capture the fresh acidity and bright raspberry character.

The Pinot Noir was harvested, field de-stemmed and pressed in a closed, inert environment. The juice was then pressed off gently and cold settled for 72 hours. The clear juice was racked into old French barriques and stainless steel tanks, then inoculated with selected yeast to enhance the varietal Pinot Noir characters of red fruit. Post fermentation, the bright, fruit forward wine fermented in tank was blended with the rich textural wine from oak to create an elegant and wellstructured Rosé. The wine was stabilised and gently filtered prior to bottling.

Food Pairing: Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and a gluten free diet. Beautiful as an aperitif or with both fresh and smoked salmon dishes. Also matches well with melon and prosciutto.
