Our Rosé is a delicate pale peach colour with an incredibly fresh palate making it the ideal choice for those warm, lazy summer evenings.  Fantastic with crisp summer salads, or fire up the barbeque and enjoy it with some char-grilled chicken or the catch of the day.  It’s wonderfully sipable without food too!

Rosé Rosé

This pretty light-peach coloured Rosé has the most enticing bouquet of pomegranate, fresh strawberries and honeysuckle. A juicy, rich palate warmed with flavours of strawberry shortcake, and focused by well-balanced acidity. Try it with some creamy goats cheese, a light summer salad, or your favourite shellfish.

Marlborough is a fantastic region for realising the full potential of grape varieties.  With its mild springs, largely dry summers and consistently cool nights, we get this great extended growing season that means we can leave grapes on the vines until they reach their ideal ripeness. 

This Rosé was created using parcels of fruit that were individually harvested over a period of two weeks. The fruit was crushed, destemmed, briefly soaked, then gently pressed. We cold settled the juice for 48hrs then racked it before a long cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks ideal for capturing all those bright, fresh fruit characters. Each parcel was fermented separately with an assortment of yeasts to build complexity and structure. When fermentation was complete we blended, stabilised and filtered the wine prior to bottling.

REVIEW Rosé 2017, Raymond Chan

Bright, even, pale salmon-pink colour, a little lighter on the edge.  The nose is fresh, with light and subtle aromas of strawberries, quince and cranberries along with nuances of red florals and a suggestion of minerals.  Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a good core of strawberries and quince along with nuances of lifted red florals.  The flavours are up-front and refreshing with crisp, lacy acidity providing zestiness.  The palate has good vinosity and a dry, fine-textured line that carries to a light, mouthwatering finish, with red floral elements.  This is a fresh, up-front, light-fruited dry rosé with strawberry, quince and red floral flavours and a mouthwatering palate.  Serve as an aperitif and with canapes over the next 2 years.

REVIEW Rosé 2017, Sam Kim

Bright, fresh and fragrant, the inviting bouquet shows raspberry, watermelon, citrus and floral aromas, leading to a vibrant palate that is light and refreshing. The wine offers delightful fruit intensity and smooth texture, beautifully supported by juicy acidity. At its best: now to 2019.
