Unusual for New Zealand, this wine is an almost equal blend of Syrah and Pinot Noir, which gives it impressive elegance and complexity. It is also unusual being quite low in alcohol at only 11%, quite dry, and very pale in colour, making it very European in style.

This is a very pretty, pale salmon coloured Rose. It has delicate floral aromas with red cherries and a strawberries and cream top note. On the palate it has lovely texture, crisp acidity, and appealing traces of cherries, strawberries and spices. It is a medium bodied, quite dry wine , very elegant and refined, with great balance and soft tannins. The long, lingering, spicy finish is particularly appealing.

Because it is made solely from red grapes and made in a dry style it will prove an ideal match for many food dishes and should age gracefully for several years.
