EarthGarden is an exciting new range from Villa Maria with a focus on sustainable production, biodiversity and healthy soils. The wines are all organic and vegan and this new range is an important step in moving all Villa Maria vineyards to organic production by 2030.
This rosé is vinted from 100% Merlot and is refreshing and dry with well-balanced flavours of strawberry, apple and cherry. Their aim was to capture Hawke's Bay summer in a bottle and we think they've hit the nail on the head. Best served chilled with fresh seafood and good friends.
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Refreshing, simple, fruity and enticing aromas of strawberry, red apple, red cherry and roses. On the palate - youthful, crisp, tense , fruity and dry. Fruit flavours mirror the nose with contrasting fine tannin tension, gently warming alcohol and balanced, even finish. Well made and ready to enjoy from today and through 2023."
The winery writes "This Organic Rosé from our Hawkes Bay Soler Vineyard showcases summerprovoking aromas of blood-orange, rosehip and watermelon. The palate isrich and moreish, finishing refreshingly dry."
