Aromas of strawberry and red fruits predominate while a hint of spice from the inclusion of a small percentage of Malbec adds complexity. The wine is full bodied with excellent acidity and freshness. This dry style Rose is widely regarded as New Zealand's premium Rose, having won many awards over the years since its first vintage in 1991. It is excellent with most foods or as an aperitif. 93% Merlot, 7% Malbec.
