"Gorgeous pale salmon-pink colour; the fabulous fragrant bouquet shows nectarine, raspberry, lemon peel and yeasty characters, followed by brilliantly focused palate that is finely textured and elegantly weighted. It is stylish and refined with excellent persistency, offering terrific drinking" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2018

"An enticing perfumed bouquet of Rosé, with aromas and flavours of Christmas cherries and tart strawberry; a definitive leesy complexity adds weight and power. Strawberry and Chantilly cream flavours with some white peach and citrus. Balanced and well-made. Drink now and through to 2024" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier

A delicate soft salmon pink in the glass, this complex yet elegant méthode traditionnelle rosé displays fresh strawberry, hints of ripe stonefruit and underlying notes of brioche and toasted hazelnut. The fine persistent bead and creamy mousse texture leads to a rich and weighty palate balanced with focused acidity and biscuity complexity derived from yeast autolysis. Elegant integration of primary fruit flavours derived from pinot noir grapes lead this generous and rounded wine to a smooth, lively and lingering finish. 

Once at the winery, select pinot noir grapes are gently pressed using our modern membrane press, resulting in low yields of juice with only a subtle colour pick-up from the skins. The pressed juice is cold settled in tank for around 48 hours until brilliantly clear, before being racked into small stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The fermentation is carried out at low temperatures with a neutral yeast, and once dry the wine is allowed to age on its lees for an extended period while undergoing malolactic fermentation. The resulting base wine is then filtered and ready for tirage or bottling, with the secondary yeast ferment in the bottle (which creates the bubbles) lasting around three weeks. Once all the bottles are finished they are stored away in a temperature-controlled warehouse for 24 months on yeast lees, before disgorging with a little reserve pinot noir wine to create a delicate blush hue. This process involves the lees being riddled from the bottle before topping, corking, labelling and release. 

The pinot noir grapes for this wine are sourced from the high river terrace blocks that surround our winery located in Marlborough’s stunning Awatere Valley. The 2014/2015 growing season in Marlborough started with a cool and wet spring and early summer resulting in a lighter fruit set than expected across all our vineyards. Warm and humid conditions in late December caused rapid growth in the canopy, which was kept under control with meticulous canopy management; allowing high fruit exposure to sunlight and air to move freely around the developing bunches. The sunny and dry summer that followed allowed the fruit to ripen throughout the blocks evenly, without any pressure from disease. The temperatures cooled slightly during the final ripening period, allowing sugar accumulation in the berries while still retaining balancing acidity.
