Produced under sustainable practices, this Rose wine is always simply delicious. Off-dry with a smidge of sweetness against lovely acidity, it has lashings of pretty fruit from slightly earthy berries to gentle stone fruit. Ripe without sacrificing balance and character it is...just hedonistic enough.

Overview

Grape

Pinot Noir

Its Origins

Quality wines start in the vineyard. It was with that clear vision that Daniel and Ursula Schwarzenbach moved to the top of the South Island in 1998 and searched for land for almost two years, before purchasing their 20ha block in Tasman on the scenic Coastal Highway. The gentle north-facing slope, the Moutere clay soils and the mild maritime climate were immediately appealing. In the winter of 2000 they grafted their own vines to plant the first 4ha of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir in the following winter. Over the years they added Riesling, Gewürztraminer and the Italian red variety Montepulciano into the mix. Born in Switzerland but living in New Zealand since age 9, Daniel began his career as a medical chemist and microbiologist in NZ and the UK, before deciding that winemaking was the path he wanted to go down. He is committed to sustainable/organic winemaking, with very few additions/adjustments made to the wines themselves.

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes on current vintage

"Our Pinot Rosé 2019 is an explosion of juicy red fruit. A vibrant acidity stylishly balances the whisper of sweetness, and a rich texture adds charisma. Dangerously easy-drinking!"

Bob Campbell MW

"Delicately succulent rosé with red cherry, crushed strawberry and subtle vanilla flavours. A hint of sweetness is perfectly balanced by gentle acidity to give a moderately dry finish." Drink 2019 - 2022
