4.5 stars – Michael Cooper

Robust rosé with vibrant raspberry, violet and spice flavours. A rich, full-bodied wine that I would be just as happy to drink on a cold winter’s evening as a sunny summer luncheon. Delicious wine.” – Bob Campbell MW

“This is not something they make every year and is more like a light red. It’s brick red, orange color. Light body. Juicy fruit. Sour cherry and orange peel. Drink now.” – James Suckling

“Estate-grown at Clevedon, in South Auckland, the pale red 2021 vintage was made from Cabernet Sauvignon. Drinking well in its youth, it is full-bodied, with strong, berryish, spicy, vaguely herbal flavours, fresh and dry. A highly distinctive wine, it’s well worth trying.” – Michael Cooper

Tasting Note: This Rosé was produced from 100% Cabernet sauvignon fruit. In the winery, bunches were destemmed and crushed directly to the basket press. Free run juice was transferred to a stainless-steel fermenter, the crushed berries were allowed to rest on skins briefly before being lightly pressed. Juice was settled and racked clear before inoculation with oenological yeasts. Cool fermented to dryness, the wine was then further chilled to achieve cold stabilization. Sterile filtered, the final wine was bottled under screwcap on the estate. Drink now through 2023. Fewer than 900 bottles produced.
