Description

  • Dry style
  • Summer berries
  • Vanilla pod
  • Strawberry shortcake

"A gorgeous expression; the inviting bouquet shows watermelon, fig, yellow peach and floral characters. It's equally satisfying on the palate, offering terrific fruit purity combined with silky mouthfeel and juicy acidity, making it fabulously drinkable. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2020

This pretty, light pink Rosé is brimming with aromas of red Summer berries and fresh pomegranate. The palate is juicy and fresh with hints of vanilla pod and strawberry shortcake. Enjoy now, or cellar up to 2 years.

The winemakers were incredibly lucky to be granted permission to create these wines during the global pandemic crisis. For this reason, the 2020 wines carry some very unique memories. The 2020 growing season was very dry, which meant disease pressure was low and some timely light rains kept just enough water flowing in their rivers. They had a classic Marlborough autumn with warm days and cool nights, which created this season’s wines with our signature fresh natural acidity and intense fruit flavours. Overall, the grapes had a luxurious ripening time, allowing flavours to fully develop while maintaining natural balance. This resulted in a Rosé that is filled with lifted aromatics and a beautiful concentrated mouthfeel.

The Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir parcels that created this Rosé were individually harvested and field destemmed. The Pinot Noir had extended skin contact in the press to achieve the desired colour and flavor balance, while the Pinot Gris parcels were gentle pressed on arrival. The juice was then cold settled for 48 hours then racked prior to a long cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to capture bright, fresh fruit characters. Each parcel was fermented separately with a range of yeasts to build complexity and structure. Following fermentation the wine was blended, stabilised and filtered prior to  ottling.

Food Pairing Enjoy with soft cheeses, vegetable pizza or strawberry tarts.
