4.5 Stars and Top 5: Cuisine Magazine Annual Rosé tasting
93 Points & 5 Stars: “This is fabulously expressed on the nose showing watermelon, mandarin, kiwifruit and floral aromas, leading to a delectably expressed palate that offers lively fruit flavours and rounded mouthfeel, finishing long and refreshing. Bright, pretty and so tasty.” Sam Kim Wine Reviews Sept-17
17.5 /20 & 4 Stars: Bright, pale cerise-pink with slight purple hues, lighter on the rim. This has a tight and elegantly concentrated nose with aromas of strawberries, cherries, cranberries and pomegranate, with lifted red florals. The aromatics are refreshing, building in fruitiness, revealing nuances of mouthwatering minerals. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features a sweetly aromatic core of strawberries and cherries, cranberries and pomegranate fruit with lifted red florals and nuances of fermentation esters. The fruit is carried along a light, drying, fine-textured phenolic line, leading to a thirst-quenching, lingering finish with florals and esters. This is an aromatic dryish rosé with lifted fruit and a fine, drying, mouthwatering line. Raymond Chan Wine Review Sept-17
Cooler temperatures during the 2017 growing season extended the ripening period and then delivered trademark Marlborough flavours. Careful vineyard & crop management decisions were made to ensure fruit was harvested clean, phenologically ripe and full of flavour. Our Reserve wine is made from the finest parcels of fruit from our 2017 harvest and characterised by the rich, berry flavours and lovely palate weight found in the best examples of Marlborough Rosé.
Winemaker’s tasting notes
A lovely, bright, pink colour with lifted aromas of raspberry, watermelon and florals. Layers of ripe berry fruit flavours are complemented by a full, rich palate. Enjoy slightly chilled, it’s delicious.
Perfect with creamy rock oysters or a Tomato, Feta and Basil Pasta.
