Crisp and dry Hawkes Bay Rose vinted by a producer with a reputation for putting plenty of flavour in the bottle. This 2019 Rose was vinted from Gimblett Gravels Merlot with a splash of Montepulciano adding extra juiciness to the palate. It's a lovely fresh style with flavours in the semi-ripe strawberry spectrum. It finishes tangy and dry.
The winery writes "Our 2019 Rose is made up of 98% Merlot and just a touch of Montepulciano (at 2% which made all the difference to the nose and palate whilst generating the most magical pink colour. Florals, rose petals and potpourri abound on the nose whilst the palate is soft, fresh and brimming with dried strawberries. A delectable dry finish makes this a winner all year long."
