Premium Pinot Noir Rose from sunny Nelson
Kahurangi Heaphy Series Nelson Rose 2018
Strawberry, Cream, Vanilla & Spice
Selected from two vineyards in the Upper Moutere, all on Mouere clay. A hot Summer provided the base for an early vintage. Rain just prior to harvest slowed ripening down somewhat but good fruit flavours developed in the picked fruit. Harvest occured on 20th March & 24th March 2018. Fermentation / Maturation was 100% Stainless Steel with initial skin contact releasing the light blush of Pinot Noir. Made from 100% Pinot Noir, our 2018 Rose is ruby in colour. Raspberry, pomegranate and savoury-sweet notes abound. The palate is full and slightly creamy. A charming wine on its own from start to finish, equally fabulous with food.
