Rose 2013

Rose_2013Made from 100% Merlot grapes sourced from our Ngatarawa Road block in the Bridge Pa Triangle Growing Area. This is an off-dry style of Rose, displaying wonderful lifted strawberry aromatics which carry into the palate. The wine starts with wonderful fruit sweetness and flows into a refreshing finish.

Harvested on – 26th March 2013

Winemaking – Crushed and left on skins, the must was then pressed off and the juice settled before a slow cool fermentation, the aim being to preserve the beautiful aromatics. The wine was then left on light lees and then made bottle ready after 5 months.

Bottled on – 20th August 2013

Drink – Right now on hot summer days!
