"Aromas of red cherry and watermelon, roses, gala apple and wet pebbles. Crunchy, fresh, fruity and tense on the palate with plenty of acidity to contrast the fruit core. Flavours mirror the bouquet with a bright youthful and refreshing finish. Well made and ready. Best drinking from today and through 2022" Cameron Douglas, MS, Oct 2020

"A nice easy-drinking warm-day wine as a refreshment and as a partner to light, finger food" Peter Saunders Review, May 2020

"Fabulously ripe and intensely aromatic, the wine shows passionfruit, kiwifruit, fresh dif and lime zest aromas on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate that's punchy and flavoursome. It's gorgeously expressed with loads of delicious flavours" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2020

The 2020 vintage will pour salmon pink in the glass  with aromas of fresh raspberries, nectarine and candied fruit.  Clean, dry and pure with a fine acid and lingering minerally finish. 

Marlborough 2020 will be a vintage remembered for a number of reasons, mainly for being the vintage that was harvested during a world pandemic. New Zealand went into Level 4 lock down on midnight March 25th, which was the most critical time for harvest. Despite these unprecedented circumstances, the harvest was of exceptional quality, some of the best the region had seen in years.

Overall, the Marlborough growing season was slightly longer and temperatures cooled toward the end of the season resulting in fuller flavoured fruit. A warm spring allowed the vines to evade frost, while an above-average rainfall lead to early flowering. The last significant spell of rainfall was mid-December with only 21mm between then and the end of harvest. Luckily the temperatures in January and February were more moderate than compared to the previous year, which reduced some of the effects of drought and lead to healthy fruit. The 2020 harvest, despite some unusual circumstances have produced some exceptional wines!

Food Pairing: We recommend this bright and lively Rosé to be pair with a grilled chicken breast and blackberry corn salsa.  Serve with a side of grilled asparagus dress in a light olive oil, and enjoy.
