Wonderful Rosé from the Rose Family

In stock

Quantity:

Phil and Chris Rose started planting the vines for Wairau River back in 1978 putting them firmly in the camp of Marlborough pioneers. With over 40 years of experience they know what they're doing and the quality fruit from mature vines shines through in their wines. With a name like Rose, you'd kind of expect their Rosé to be rather good… and it is. Dry, juicy, delicate yet mouthfilling.


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Displaying subtle floral notes combined with lifted aromas of strawberry and raspberry. These characters translate generously to the palate, which is finely balanced by delicate acidity and an off dry finish."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"It is sweetly fragrant on the nose showing rockmelon, raspberry, crunchy apple and floral aromas, followed by a deliciously expressed palate that is filled with vibrant fruit flavours and refreshing acidity. The wine is immediate and delightfully tasty. At its best: now to 2020."


4 Stars & 17.5+/20 Raymond Chan, August 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"Very pale candyfloss pink with a little depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is very delicate with fragrant aromas of red florals along with a fresh, mouthwatering amalgam of herbs and minerals, unfolding subtle strawberry and pomegranate fruit notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has delicate, but mouthfilling flavours of strawberries, red florals and pomegranate with subtle notes of fresh herbs, forming a tight core and providing a thirst-quenching mouthfeel. The fruit flows with good linearity along a very fine, phenolic-textured line with crisp acidity, carrying the flavours to a clean, dry, lingering, nuanced finish. This is a crisp and thirst-quenching, delicately mouthfilling flavoured dry rosé with strawberries, florals and herbs. Serve as an aperitif and with canapés over the next 2 years. Made from Pinot Noir fruit, over 50% from the ‘Rapaura’ vineyard with almost all the rest from the ‘Home’ vineyard and a small portion from ‘The Angler’ vineyard, crushed and given a limited amount of skin contact and fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 3.0 g/L RS."
