Description

"This is beautifully bright and delicate on the nose showing watermelon, stone fruit, rockmelon and floral characters, leading to a finely textured palate that is ripe and juicy. The wine is fresh and light, and filled with tasty flavours and perfectly pitched acidity, finishing persistent and mouth-watering. At its best: now to 2019" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2017

Pinot noir rosé in a medium-dry style, with flavours suggesting watermelon and summer berries. The wine has a silken texture and quite a lengthy finish with impressive purity. A charming rosé. Bob Campbell, Master of Wine

An attractive, fresh and stylish New Zealand Rosé full of heirloom rose petals, cranberry and peach aromas. Elegant and well-balanced, this wine shows undertones of raspberry, nectarine and salinity notes which lead to a dry, silky finish.

Black Cottage Rosé was inspired by David’s long stint working in Corsica and the South of France crafting fresh, crisp, dry, salmon pink rosé. From a difficult growing season with continued cloud cover in summer and persistent rain during harvest, we escaped lightly, producing wines with good acidity and flavour. Treated very much as a white wine in the cellar, this wine had the added benefit of 8 weeks on light yest lees, increasing the texture and mineral notes. Best drnk this year (2017) or next.

Food Pairing: A great match with seafood, especially crayfish and as an aperitif.
