Rosé

Did someone say Rosé? A beautiful Rosé that is perfect for summer, perfect all year round.


A dry European style of Rosé showing off the New World fruit weight and intensity. Bright, freshly picked strawberries, covered with cream. The palate is long & refreshing and to be savoured.

The grapes are selected from vineyards throughout the Hawke’s Bay region. We pick the grapes early in the harvest to retain acidity.

Rosé wine gets it’s colour from the natural pigment of the grape skins, so as soon as the fruit has been harvested it goes straight to press to ensure minimal contact with the skins, this is to obtain the classic salmon pink Rose colour, nice bright acidity and pure fruit aromatics.

Winemaking

After the fruit has been destemmed and immediately softly pressed, the juice is then treated in the same fashion as a white wine; cold settled, then fermented cool to preserve the aromas.

Reviews

"2016 Vintage: Made from Merlot grapes the aromas of red plum, cherry and red apple skin are fresh and ripe, some floral notes and light stone mineral quality complete the bouquet. On the palate - fruity reflecting the flavours of red berries and plum, medium+ acidity and very fine tannins; balanced, fresh and well made. Drink now and through 2017."

"2016 Vintage: Made from merlot, this is ripe and generously expressed showing red apple, nectarine, strawberry and floral characters on the nose. The palate is ripe and rounded, and offers attractive fruit flavours and smooth texture, finishing long and refreshing. A very likable rose for easy drinking. At its best: now to 2018. $20.00. www.giesenwines.com. Jan 2017."
