Saint Clair
Marlborough Premium
Rosé

Flavours of fresh strawberries and spicy pear with a luscious mouth coating structure.

Winemaker:

Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark

Colour:

Salmon pink.

Aroma:

Fresh strawberries, cream, spicy pear and cranberry aromas.

Palate:

A luscious and weighty palate full of strawberries, cream, red cherry and cinnamon sprinkled pear. A clean fresh acidity leads to a long lingering finish.

Ageing potential:

Perfect for drinking immediately this Rosé will continue to deliver over the next two to three years.

Winemaking:

The fruit was machine harvested in the cool of the night in order to retain freshness and capture the fruit flavours. The grapes spent only a few hours on skins to extract the delicate flavour, aroma, and colour and then carefully pressed. After settling the juice was fermented in 100 percent stainless steel at cooler temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. At the end of fermentation the wine was stabilised and carefully prepared for bottling.
