Love it. Drink it.
It is not often we struggle writing tasting notes.
This wine stumped us. We just wanted to drink it. Okay we said, focus - then slowly the team admitted to finding crushed cranberry, a hint of mandarin, a nuance of Lady Grey tea leaves (oil of Bergamot), someone mentioned fine talc, another whispered watermelon, still another saw hints of Aperol spritz.
We simply loved it. It is a wine which lets your imagination run wild – sitting on the foreshore at Mapua with a bowl of clams, tucking into a plate of charcuterie – pink slivers of prosciutto, dark wedges of duck terrine and crusty bread.Such are the dreams ahead.Until those heady days appear, a glass of this Rosé will transport you to a place of indolence and pleasure.Pale rose petal colour with an enticing textural entry.The grapes were dry farmed from the organically managed lowerslopes of Tom’s Block. Bunches were gently pressed on a Champagne cycle within an hour of being picked –so had very little skin contact.The wine has intriguing depth with excellent acid balance and a delicious whoosh of minerality carrying through to a satisfying finish.
