94/100 – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
5 stars – Michael Cooper
“This is pristine yet elegantly complex, showing watermelon, apricot, orange peel and floral aromas on the nose with a hint of flinty overtone. The palate displays excellent weight and persistency, wonderfully supported by fine texture and vibrant acidity, finishing gorgeously long and attractively dry. Certified organic. At its best: now to 2023.” – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
“Certified organic, this highly characterful wine was made from pinot noir grapes, hand-harvested at Rapaura. Bright pink, it is mouthfilling, with strong peach, strawberry and spice flavours, a gentle touch of tannin, fresh acidity and a dry, lingering finish. Fine value.” – Michael Cooper
Tasting Note: Delightful salmon pink colour, this Rosé is made from Pinot Noir grapes exhibiting cherry & strawberry notes made in a dry style with a refreshingly crisp finish. The Pinot Noir Clones Abel , 777 and 5 were machine harvested from the Orchard vineyard. The fruit was skin contacted for 3 hours then pressed. The free run juice only was collected and settled overnight before being racked clear to ferment. Following a long cool ferment the wins was racked with light lees for maturation for 3 months before bottling.
Variety: Rosé of Pinot Noir
Region: Marlborough, New Zealand
