Taste & Other Notes

Bright, fresh strawberries and cream with a nice twist of cranberry upfront, mid palate is firm and a creamy texture while the finish is fresh with crisp acidity that results in a very satisfyingly dry, juicy wine. A beautiful summer lunch-time wine that is wonderful value for money.

 

Winemaker release notes:

This Merlot dominant Rose is produced from our Joseph Soler vineyard
in Hawke’s Bay and is blended with small parcels of Pinot Noir (5%) and
Syrah (1%). The light soil type and the unique meso-climate of this vineyard
combined with the bright summer of 2018 has produced a fresh and aromatic
wine.
wine making
A classical approach to Rose winemaking was employed in the creation of this
wine. Harvested grapes were left to rest briefly on skins before being gently
pressed. The gentle extraction of colour during this period has resulted in the
wines delicate pink hue. Following a brief settling period the juice was then
cool fermented to ensure the preservation of fruit purity, freshness and aromatic
intensity. Post fermentation the wine rested for several months before being
lightly fined, filtered and bottled.
