Forrest Rose 2018

Alive on the nose with strawberry, raspberry fruit flavors and just a hint of dry herbs – sage, thyme and rosemary. It’s ripe and fruity, yet crisp, refreshing and dry. Perfect for a warm summers day “al fresco” lunch – smoked meats, aged cheeses, crisp salad and herb focaccia.

Winemaker's Notes

This Rosé wine was drawn from 4 vineyards located around Renwick in the Wairau River Valley. Whilst all have their own characteristics, they share in common the Wairau plains, gravel-rich, free draining and devigourating soil profile. Our Rosé is a blend of Pinot Noir and Malbec. Each small parcel of fruit harvested in the cool of early morning, crushed/destemmed, then given a brief 4-6 hour cold soak to extract just enough “lipstick red” colour. The juice was cold settled and then cool fermented prior to blending and finishing for bottling in July.
