At bottling this wine was a delightful pale pink. At the edge it has a pale purple iridescence. This is from Malbec. We call it the ‘Malbec ring of confidence’.
Clean and fresh, dominated by summer red fruit aromas.
This wine is full-bodied for a Rosé. It has real richness and weight on the palate. It is soft and round and finishes with a sweet fruit lift.
Cellaring As with all Rosés, this wine is delicious young, but we believe it has the structure to gain complexity while keeping its freshness over a period of 2 – 4 years. Suggested Wine List Description A full and fruity style wine. Sweet strawberry and wild berry fruit flavours add richness leading on to a crisp but full finish. Independent Reviewer's Comment “Full of drink-young charm, this West Auckland rosé is a 2:1 blend of malbec and merlot. Bright pink, with fresh, floral aromas, it is lively and medium-bodied, with strawberry and spice flavours, a hint of peaches, balanced acidity and a dry finish.” Michael Cooper
