Description

  • Dry style
  • Strawberry 
  • Redcurrant
  • Peach

This dry style Rosé is widely regarded as New Zealand's premium Rosé and has won many awards since its first vintage in 1991. It is an excellent choice with many foods or as an aperitif. It is a beautiful pale pink, dry to taste with aromas and flavours of redcurrants, strawberry and peach.

This wine was grown in two inland merlot vineyards. Both produce a full favoured and elegant Rosé. They are gravel based river terraces, one at Puketapu, the other one on the banks of the Ngaruroro River on Ohiti Road. Intensively managed with both shoot and bunch thinning practised, allowing us to pick fully ripened grapes at low sugars in the pursuit of an elegant and dry style Rosé.

The individual vineyard parcels were pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery, resulting in juice with little colour or tannin. After settling the juice, the fermentation was conducted at low temperatures to capture the vibrant red fruit flavours we seek in our Esk Valley Rosé. The ferment was stopped when almost dry, leaving a small amount of residual sugar to balance the natural acidity.

Food Pairing: Serve chilled and enjoy with salmon, smoked fish, cured meats, white meats and summer salads.
