VARIETY and STYLE
A pure, dry, fruity (think red berries such as raspberries and cherries) and spicy Syrah rose (black pepper on the nose) made entirely from Syrah grapes grown on our home estate vineyard on Waiheke Island .
The hand-selected, hand-picked fruit is whole bunch pressed with just minutes in skin contact followed by a long, slow, ultra-cool ferment to maximise the varietal characteristics of this grape.
Suitable for all including vegans and vegetarians.
A great food match with roast tomatoes, seared scallops and basilico - or just by itself chilled down on the deck at sunset with olives and dips!
Crystal clear, mid-rose/strawberry with vanilla, strawberry, cherries, confectionery and black pepper on the nose. The palate is dry and refreshing with good acid/fruit balance and unusual strawberries, ‘cherries and cream’, spice (pepper) and confectionery notes. Match with seared scallops, roast tomatoes, garlic and basil - or just by itself on a sunny summer's day on the deck. Best served at 12-13 degrees C.
2013 proved to be one of the top vintages on Waiheke Island and the Syrah block which is reserved for the Rose every year achieved excellent early ripeness and flavour.
The vines were in their 9th year and the crop was reduced at green harvest to 1.5kg per vine.
The fruit was selectively hand-picked in the cool of the morning, destemmed, and lightly crushed in our membrane press. After a short interval the juice was lightly pressed off the skins and run into stainless steel and chilled. A long, slow, cold, wild-initated ferment with late innoculation to finish was carried out over 6 weeks to obtain good flavour extraction.
