A 2023 VINTAGE ROSÉ SUPERSTAR!!
#1 TOP NZ ROSÉ & FIVE STARS | Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review
FIVE STARS 95/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
92 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
When Bob Campbell MW ranked this his top rosé tasted so far this year, we snapped to attention - and after one taste you'll know what the all the fuss is about. Beautifully presented in supercool funky bottles, we're all about this new vintage of Spindrift Rosé. It's a significant step-up from Awatere River's much loved estate rosé, and the 2023 brims with vibrant aromas of jasmine and rosewood. On the palate this is crisp, lively and just off dry rosé with the lingering acidity to keep the wine finishing long and refreshingly juicy.
If you're looking to put something special on your table when the gang calls around for drinks on the deck, we're playing your song here - and it's a smash it. Vegan friendly too. How good.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Exquisitely styled and enticing, the wine shows white flesh stone fruit, crunchy apple, fresh fig and floral aromas with a hint of oatmeal complexity. The brilliantly focused palate delivers delicate fruit intensity with refined texture and bright acidity, leading to an impressively long, linear finish."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "An enticing floral and lifted bouquet with scents of fresh white and red strawberry, red melon and tropical fruits. On the palate a crisp, refreshing, delicate and just dry wine with core fruit flavours that reflect the bouquet. There’s a frangipane red melon then berry fruit flavours, plenty of acidity and a touch of saline deliver a wine of freshness and flavour."
The winery writes "Vibrant aromatics of jasmine and rosewood. This dry Rose is fine, delicate, juicy and lively on the palate with bright fruit and a long elegant finish."
