A bone-dry, crisp style using equal parts of pinot noir and pinot gris from across the Marlborough region.
[A soft peach colour with a golden hue.]
A pretty, aromatic nose with notes of pomegranate molasses, red delicious toffee apple, strawberry conserve and crab apple jelly.
A round mouthfeel, with a smooth and ethereal texture. This wine is bone dry with delicately balanced acidity.
Perfect as an aperitif. Pairs well with halloumi or goat’s cheese salads, or lightly grilled fish and seafood, and melon with prosciutto.
"Offering great value, the 2019 vintage, grown in the Awatere Valley, is a 50:50 blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Bright, light pink, it is crisp and lively, with good body, strong watermelon and spice flavours, and a crisp, fully dry finish."

"Pale, delicate rosé with crushed strawberry, raspberry, vanilla and subtle spice flavours. A bright, fresh wine in an off-dry style. Fine chalky tannins on the finish. Offers very good value at this price." DEC 19
