Winemaker Notes
Kumeu had yet another great vintage in 2021, the third in a row. This allowed us to hand harvest our Malbec and Merlot in pristine condition over a couple of days in mid-March. The fruit was lightly whole bunch pressed, and cold settled prior to fermentation. 10% was racked to neutral oak barrels where it was fermented and aged on yeast lees for 6 months creating a rounder, creamy pallet, and light brioche aromas. The rest of the juice was fermented in a refrigerated stainless steel tank. The slow, cool fermentation locked in the fresh fruit aromas. Following maturation, the wines were blended, fined, and filtered.

Tasting Notes
Colour: 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’. Bouquet: Clean and fresh, dominated by summer red fruit aromas. Palate: 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.
