Produced by Simon Waghorn and his team at Astrolabe - one of New Zealand's most respected wine producers - Durvillea is a highly regarded option for those looking to sample the accuracy and sheer drinkability of the Astrolabe range at a more accessible price point. This dry rosé is a striking take on the lighter European style that is taking New Zealand by storm. It comes highly recommended.
The quirky Durvillea name comes from a seaweed variety Waghorn, a seaweed geek(!), studied at University. Vegetarian and Vegan friendly.
The winery writes "A pretty, aromatic nose with notes of pomegranate molasses, red delicious toffee apple, strawberry conserve and crab apple jelly. A round mouthfeel, with a smooth and ethereal texture. This wine is bone dry with delicately balanced acidity. Perfect as an aperitif. Pairs well with halloumi or goat’s cheese salads, or lightly grilled fish and seafood, and melon with prosciutto."
