"A charming Rosé; the nicely lifted bouquet shows raspberry, watermelon, citrus and floral characters, followed by a juicy palate that is lively and tasty. The wine offers youthful fruit flavours together with fine texture and crisp acidity, finishing long and delightful" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2018

A delicate salmon pink in the glass, this Mystery Pinot Rosé displays aromas of strawberries, lemon and light florals leading to a palate of bright cherry, Summer berry fruit and delicate green melon. Bright fruit flavours are balanced with zesty acidity and a touch of soft phenolics, leading to a lusciously fresh and dry finish.

The 2017/2018 growing season in Nelson enabled excellent flowering and fruit-set in the vines. Much needed rain fell in mid to late January, however the much heavier rain that fell between February and March provided challenges for the vineyard team – with record levels seen over the first three months of the year. Meticulous canopy management in the period leading up to harvest combined with the excellent early season conditions meant that good flavours and balance were seen in the grapes when harvested in early March, with total yields down on previous years.

Early harvested fruit from this Nelson vineyard is machine picked in batches. 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, phenols and acidity. After blending the resulting wine is allowed to settle before being stabilised and cross-flow filtered without fining, ready for bottling in mid-July.
