Rose

nevis bluff Rose

$30.00

Pinot Noir makes a delightful Rosé, so each year we sacrifice some of the grapes that go into our signature Pinot Noir to make a fruit driven, summery Rosé.

Made in a dry style, this is a serious wine with vibrant and lifted fruit aromatics showing great depth, elegance and style.

2017 Vintage

The fruit for this Rosé was left on skins for four days before being gently pressed and fermented with a indigenous yeast.

The resulting wine displays red cherry, watermelon and guava aromatics leading to a warm, spicy driven palate. Has great toffee and musk with great persistence and a soft finish.

4.5 Stars

Complex and engaging, the bouquet shows strawberry tart, stone fruit, mixed spice and floral characters, leading to a beautifully rounded palate that is silky, juicy and fleshy, wonderfully enhanced by whispering sweetness and bright acidity. This is restrained and savoury with appealing sweet berry undertones. At its best: now to 2019.
