Gold Medal & 95/100 – New World Wine Awards 2021


A signature wine style from Esk Valley and regarded amongst the classic wines of New Zealand. First released in 1991 this dry style Rosé must be one of New Zealand's most awarded Rosés and is made from Merlot grapes grown in cool inland sites in Hawkes Bay. It's such a clean, bright and refreshing style it's the perfect foil to those hot days. 


Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"This dry style Rosé is widely regarded as New Zealand's premium Rosé and has won many awards since its first vintage in 1991. It is an excellent choice with many foods or as an aperitif. It is a beautiful pale pink, dry to taste with aromas and flavours of redcurrants, strawberry and peach."


Rated Excellent, 5 Stars & 93/100 NZ Wine Rater, March 2022 (2021 Vintage)
"Deeper pink with a vermilion tinge. Pronounced, attractive nose with juicy currant, quince, raspberry and a saline twist. Lighter than expected on the palate with crunchy redcurrant fruit and a tasty, sappy herbal element. Possesses nice freshness with good balance and length."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2021 Vintage)
"For many years, this was New Zealand’s most successful rosé on the show circuit. From relatively cool, inland sites, the 2021 vintage is a Merlot-based wine with a bright pink hue. Fragrant, it has fresh, very generous peach, strawberry and spice flavours, a hint of apricot, and an almost imperceptible sliver of sweetness (3.9 grams/litre of residual sugar), balanced by appetising acidity."

  • 5 star review  Amazing customer service. Vino Fino arranged a gift wrapped, hand delivered, chilled bottle of champagne for the morning of my best friends wedding, as I was stuck in the UK with COVID. A beautiful gift. It was like nothing was too much trouble for them. I was even able to dictate a small message. Thank you for your excellent service!

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
