Description

"Light, fresh rosé in a dry style with strawberry, raspberry and subtle fresh herb flavours. Very light flavours are supported by fine, peppery tannins" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Nov 2017

"Fragrant and quite floral with sweet summer rose, whispers and strawberry and red cherry, simple yet enticing. On the palate – fresh, light, fruity and just dry. An easy choice for aperitif and by the glass service. Drink now and through 2018" Cameron Douglas, Master of Wine

"It is nicely fruited and fragrant on the nose showing red apple, strawberry, floral and subtle spice notes. The palate is ripe and rounded with appealing fruit weight and elegant intensity, backed by refreshing acidity. Very friendly and easy on the palate. At its best: now to 2019." Wine Orbit, 2018

Pale salmon pink in the glass. The Delta Pinot Noir Rosé offers aromas of berry fruits and fresh spices. The palate is complex with flavours of strawberry shortcake with a rich round mid palate and dry finish.

The grapes for this wine came from mature Pinot Noir vines planted in Marlborough’s upper Wairau Valley on stony, sandy deep river gravel soils. The selection of clones were planted, predominantly 10/5, which expresses beautiful flavours in this soil type.

Upon harvesting wine maker, Heather Stewart, had the grapes destemmed and left to soak for a few hours to extract a hint of colour from the skins. The grapes were then lightly pressed, the juice warmed, and inoculated with a selected yeast strain for fermentation. The fermentation was carried out in a stainless steel tank at a cool temperature, to enhance and preserve the aromatics. The wine was fermented to dryness then stabilized and filtered, with no fining, making it suitable for vegans.
