Marlborough Rosé 2022 750ml
This fruit driven Rosé shows beautiful rose petal and strawberry characters on the nose. Fresh berry characters and juicy cherry notes leads onto a palate that is complex, showing bright fruit characters. Peach and nectarine characters lingers on the palate, with an off-dry texture that finishes full and creamy.
After consecutive drought years the 2022 growing season started with some wet weather that carried on until late spring. Excellent fruit-set early December resulted in crop levels bigger than average. Ripe flavours at low sugar levels allowed us to pick early to retain the natural acidity in the juice compared to previous years. In what will ultimately go down as a ‘challenging’ vintage, unwavering vineyard preparation delivered excellent fruit condition and flavour concentration.
90 POINTS – Bob Campbell, The Real Review, November 2022
Pinot noir, riesling, chardonnay and gewurztraminer grapes combine to produce a tantalising pale pink rose with summer berry, green apple and citrus flavours in a crisp, off-dry style. Fragrant and mouth-watering.
SILVER – Aotearoa Regional Wine Competition
91 POINTS – Cameron Douglas MS, Summer World of Wine, September 2022
Aromas of fresh cherry and strawberry flesh, white rose and red papaya. Flavours on the palate are of the same with texture from acidity and fine fruit tannins adding in mouthfeel and length. Salivating, refreshing and dry on the finish, a wine for summer drinking and through 2024.
