Saint Clair
Marlborough Premium
Rosé

Luscious and mouth coating with flavours of raspberry and fresh ripe strawberries.

Winemaker:

Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark

Colour:

Pale salmon

Aroma:

Lifted ripe raspberry and perfumed strawberry aromas.

Palate:

A luscious and weighty palate full of strawberries, cream, and ripe raspberry notes. The clean fresh acidity leads to a long lingering finish with hints of spicy pear.

Ageing potential:

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

Winemaking:

This wine is made from a blend of Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. 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 per cent 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.
