Description

  • Strawberries & cream
  • Raspberries
  • Fresh peach
  • Fruity, mid-dry style

An elegant salmon pink colour in the glass, this Rosé immediately presents luscious strawberries and cream on the nose. Those bright berries meet with white peach stone fruit on the palate with a dry to medium-dry finish.

Harvest this year was early across all regions in NZ. The Marlborough Pinot Noir showed exceptional promise and so along with most varieties, winemakers picked earlier than usual the earliest on record. Together with an amazing production team, they managed to turn this Rosé around particularly fast. The early pick of the Pinot Noir has favoured the fruit forward style of Rosé and can be confident the flavour profile is consistent year on year just what consumers love.

The fruit was picked early March and a percentage was macerated on skins for 4 hours before pressing off. Another proportion was drained off tanks to help with concentration. The wine was fermented very cool (10-13C) to preserve the fruit characters and the bright lively colour. After only a short time on lees (2 weeks) it was racked and sulphured, before being filtered and prepared for bottling.

Food Pairing: Perfect with crab cakes, grilled prawns & lobster dishes.
