Few Hawke's Bay wines enjoy the popularity of Black Barn Rosé; 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 berry fruit notes and youthful fruit exuberance and is equally at home with or without food.
The 2023 release is right on the money - vinted in a deliciously dry and refreshing style with those savoury complexities adding weight and interest to this classic Hawke's Bay wine. Get in quick. This one always sells out before summer's over.
This fresh, crisp wine is deliciously 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 "Made from 100% Merlot fruit. Aromas of red apple, peach and orange papaya with a fresh rose and fruit tea scent. Silky smooth on the palate with a core of fruit flavours, contrasting acidity and crisp, refreshing finish. Flavours of red apple and peach mirror the nose. Some very fine fruit tannins and light mealy texture long with a crushed stone mineral flavour engage the palate right on the finish. Balanced, well made and ready."
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Gorgeously restrained and elegant, the wine shows subtle notes of crunchy apple, raspberry and floral with a hint of flinty complexity. It's focused and linear on the palate delivering bright fruit flavours combined with fine texture and vibrant acidity, finishing long and delightfully crisp-dry."
Even better than last year!
