A deliciously fragrant and light Rose with elements of red apples. Beautifully vibrant and a ideal summer wine, perfect for a relaxing afternoon. Ideal accompaniment to rich seafood, chicken or a array of aperitifs.
From the Winery
Beautifully perfumes this wine shows an array of fruit characters, ranging from summer berries through to crisp red delicious apple notes
The palate has an elegant structure with a textural, juicy mid-palate and a refreshingly dry finish.
We wanted to make a great summer wine that was lower in alcohol, dry in style and worked well with food.
The wine comes from Pinot Noir grapes grown on our ‘Twin Valleys' vineyard, located in the Fareham Lane area of Marlborough. The vineyard, owned and run by Pete and Anne Reed, is at the western end of the Wairau Valley, where it meets the Waihopai Valley. The Pinot Noir is intense in flavour and perfectly suited to the style of Rosé we want to achieve.
The focus with this wine is to provide a drink that has texture and depth, rather than focusing solely on primary fruit notes. We want a wine that satisfies across the palate and employ a number of techniques to achieve this. The fruit was hand-picked then macerated by foot in the press and left on skins for a period of time until we achieved the colour and flavour we wanted. It was then pressed and taken to tank for cool fermentation to preserve the vibrant fruit characters of the wine.
