"It's delightfully expressed on the nose showing ripe peach, rock melon, sweet strawberry and floral aromas, followed by a succulent palate that's beautifully rounded and lingering. It's silky and flowing to a lengthy delectable finish" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2020

"Fresh and fruity, bright and engaging bouquet of rosé  with aromas of red apple and raspberry tea, cherry and red flowers. Crisp, dry and refreshing on the palate with a spine of acidity contrasted by a core of fruit. Flavours mirror the nose. A lovely wine" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier, Oct 2019

The wine displays bright red currant, cranberry and spice aromatics that give way to a voluptuous warmly textured palate. This has a great toffee and musk, all combined it shows finesse, elegance and great concentration with a warm persistent finish.

Pinot Noir makes a delightful Rosé, so each year Nevis Bluff sacrifice some of the grapes that go into their signature Pinot Noir to make a fruit driven, summery Rosé. Made in a dry style, this is a serious wine with vibrant and lifted fruit aromatics showing great depth, elegance and style.

Nevis Bluff wines are sourced from their vineyard in the Pisa sub-region of Central Otago; a region famed for long, hot Summer days and cool nights. A slow ripening period produces intense fruit flavours, resulting in wines with rich aromatics, concentrated complexity and dense fruit sweetness. It is this unique terroir and philosophy to select only premium grapes, combined with a natural winemaking approach that produces these exceptional wines.

The fruit for this wine was 100% destemmed and not crushed to retain the lifted fruit characters. It was left on skins for 4 days at around 6-10 degrees Celsius. The juice was then gently pressed to a tank. An indigenous yeast was used and the wine fermented to approximately 2-4 grams residual sugar for sweetness and balance. This was left on yeast lees for 3 months to bulk up texture and balance. This lovely dry style of Rose shows great depth and an elegant mouth-feel and style. 

The fruit for this wine was hand-picked and selected. 

Food Pairing: This easy-drinking wine is ideal as an apéritif or enjoyed during the last of Summer's alfresco dinning opportunities alongside fresh, crisp salads.
