Rosé 2023 - North Canterbury - Summer Series

Rosé 2023 - North Canterbury - Summer Series

 

Our 2023 Rosé is made using an unusual, yet glorious, assemblage of North Canterbury Pinot Noir, Central Otago Pinot Gris, and, North Canterbury Chardonnay. All parcels were hand harvested and subject to ruthless sorting in the field so that only the most pristine fruit made its way into the winery. All components were handled separately and once dry, were subject to a rigorous blending trial so that the final wine represented everything that we want our Rosé to be - summer in a bottle, all year round!

At bottling, this wine is a beautiful, pale pink, and aromatically, we have managed to capture the best of these three noble grape varieties. The Pinot Noir component brings fresh strawberries and a whisper of chocolate, while the Pinot Gris gives us beautiful, citrus and stonefruit notes and a beguiling waft of spiced fruit. Chardonnay gives us the glorious creaminess that binds everything together.

On the palate, this wine has the sort of presence that you seldom see in a rosé. Everything you could smell in the glass; you can now taste. The wine has freshness and juiciness, but also weight, complexity and length.

This wine is perfect as an apéritif – just add friends and a warm summer evening, and you will want for little more. That said, our 2023 Rosé has such extraordinary weight, texture and complexity, that it becomes an immediate winner when matched with seafood dishes, or white meats such as chicken or pork.

This wine is very special and only 1981 bottles were made.

Tasting Notes

The 2023 Pinot Gris is crafted using hand harvested fruit from a single vineyard in the Gibbston Valley, Central Otago. This wine shows beguiling aromas of citrus fruit and flavours of apricot and nectarine. This luminous wine is perfect as an aperitif and is an ideal complement to asian inspired cuisine.
