Sourced 64% from our Martinborough vineyards and 36% from the Craggy Range vineyard in Gimblett Gravels, Hawkes Bay. A range of fruit has been used this year: 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 16% Pinot Noir, 16% Syrah and 4% Cabernet Franc all combining to make a savoury, complex style. Barrel fermentation, time on lees and indigenous yeasts are all factors that add to the texture and breadth of flavours in this wine.
This year’s Rosé has a wonderful array of aromas; watermelon, baked raspberry, fig and melon with a savoury note of pecorino cheese. This is a dry Rosé that on tasting made us all want platters of wild cured meats, hard cheeses and cold smoked salmon!
