Double Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2023
Mount Brown wines offer some of the best priced wines around and the fact that they are really good, delicious and local adds to the appeal. From the foothills of Mount Brown in the Waipara Valley comes this delicious Rosé made from Tempranillo, Syrah and Pinot Noir grapes. A vividly scented nose leads you to beautifully balanced palate of delicate mixed berries with subtle citrus giving depth and zip.
Winery notes (2023 Vintage)
"This delightful Rosé has strawberries and cream aromas, a touch of sweetness followed by a long crisp finish. Full of life and flavour. Made with the saignee process from Tempranillo, Syrah and Pinot it underwent a cool ferment after 24 hours on skins, resulting in a fruit forward wine with beautiful colour. We love it with summer salads, light pasta dishes or seafood. But often a Rosé is just perfect on its own on a warm summers evening."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2023 (2023 Vintage)
"This is instantly appealing on the nose with watermelon, apricot, Gala apple and floral aromas, followed by a finely flowing palate that's juicy and elegantly flavoursome. Brightly expressed and lively, making it charming and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2025."
