Winemaker Notes

This wine offers an intense lifted nose of ripe tropical fruits and citrus. The wine is re fined and e legant, displaying a finely textured palate with flavours of guava and stone fruit. Wonderfully expressive with a dry refreshing finish this wine is best savored with high-jinks and convivial company.

Critical Acclaim

WS 89
Wine Spectator

Nicely done, with Asian pear, lemon-lime, ripe peach and melon flavors that have a terrific fleshiness, with bright acidity and plenty of nuances. Drink now. 6,000 cases imported.

WE 88
Wine Enthusiast

A medium-bodied, creamy-textured rendering of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, with notes of tropical fruit and clementines balanced by hints of struck flint and red bell pepper. Finishes soft and easy. Drink now.

ST 87
International Wine Cellar

Pale color. Green pepper and spices on the nose. Then supple and rather soft on the palate, with lime and pepper flavors dominating. This is almost creamy, but the persistent finish shows some slightly spiky acidity.

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."
