SOLD OUT AT THE WINERY - FINAL ALLOCATION OF THIS SUMMER FAVOURITE
91 POINTS | Cameron Douglas, MS.
ONE OF NEW ZEALAND'S MOST SOUGHT AFTER WINES.
Few wines enjoy the popularity of Black Barn Rose and, from the very moment it lands instore, it flies out the door. Always sitting at the drier end of the scale it's the perfect mix of savoury notes with youthful fruit exuberance and is equally at home with or without food. The 2018 is right on the money - with savoury complexity adding weight and interest to this classic Hawkes Bay wine.
Produced from Estate grown Merlot grapes, this fresh crisp wine is just a touch off dry with flavours of strawberry and pomegranate. It's clean and tangy and perfectly suited as an aperitif or in any alfresco setting. Stunning summer wine.
Cameron Douglas,MS writes "Mid-salmon and apricot core hues with aromas and flavours of plum, cherry and peach; a light dry stone mineral note and gentle fruit spice moments. Loads of texture on the palate with a light fine tannin layer accentuated by firm and refreshing acidity, lengthy finish. Well suited to food."
