LIGHTER ALCOHOL: 9.5% ABV
70% Merlot and 30% Pinot Gris from carefully selected from Hawkes Bay sites that express ripe flavours and ripe acidity at lower sugar levels than standard wines.
Cool fermentation has preserved the delicate characteristics of this wine. The fruit is gently handled in the winery to ensure the wine has bright aromatics, fresh ripe fruit flavours, without compromising the palate weight or wine texture and length.
Careful viticultural and winemaking practices have been employed to produce a wine that is naturally lower in alcohol, with no compromise on flavour. This Lighter Rosé displays cranberry and strawberry aromas on the nose. The palate is delicately balanced, smooth and refreshing.
