Winemaker Notes

The wine has a violet color, with cherry and wild berry fruits on the nose, shadowed by supple oak. On the palate the wine is soft and generous showing true varietal fruit flavors. Fine ripe tannins add structure and support creating a seamless finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Fragrant, with a wonderfully effusive minty note that adds an air of elegance to the smooth strawberry, raspberry and cherry flavors. This has a great finish that ties all the fresh flavors together. Drink now through 2016.

Wairau River
Established in 1978, the Rose family estate vineyards are situated on the banks of the Wairau River. Low crops and ripe fruit produce wine that has become renowned for exhibiting intense fruit characteristics and classical elegance. “The philosophy that we pursue has always been one of elegance and fruit power with the foundation of the style being drinkability. We put a lot of store in the selection of flavors in the vineyard, subsequent small batch vintning and the final touches of the marriage are created at the blending table."
