This is only the second release of a Main Divide Rosé from the Donaldson Family and once again they have come through with a beauty – as you would expect!

Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Carefully selected grapes from Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc were harvested in early April to make this wine. The free run juice was given a small amount of skin contact to add some colour. Fermentation was carried out in stainless steel vats at a cool temperature to retain varietal purity and freshness, with the wine being bottled shortly after.

It is salmon pink, with fragrant aromas of strawberries and red currents. On the palate it is dry and finely textured, with fresh and vibrant minerality. The influence of the Pinot Noir ensures the wine remains fleshy and supple, while the two Cabernets contribute structure."

4 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, August 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"If you thought, because it’s a rosé from the South Island, that it was bound to be made out of pinot noir, then you might need to saddle up and jump on a new horse because this is an ‘assemblage’ of different grapes that combined, make a crisp, rich, fruit-saturated style that has Spring and Summer tattooed all over it’s face. Juicy and rocka-rolla with flavour."

91/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, October 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"A "unique assemblage of varieties" has produced a dry, moderately full-flavoured and slightly spicy wine with appealing floral, rose, strawberry and raspberry characters. They’ve got the balance right. A refreshing rosé with a personality of its own."

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"The fresh, vivacious 2019 vintage is a blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Bright, light pink, it has strong, yet delicate, flavours of peaches, strawberries and watermelon, and a slightly sweet crisp finish."

91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"Charming and delightfully expressed, the wine shows Gala apple, lemon peel, nectarine and floral characters with a hint of sweet strawberry. It is juicy and finely textured on the palate with lovely youthful flavours, finishing long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2021."

90/100 Cameron Douglas MS, August 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"An assemblage of different varieties show off aromas of peach tea and red apple, red cherry and a light scent of rose. Crisp, fruity, ripe and tart fruits from cherry to apple and red melon envelope the palate. Refreshing, light, crisp and just dry on the finish. Classic Summer drinking all wrapped up in a single bottle. Lots to enjoy with this wine. Best drinking from today and through to Summer 2021."
