    Winemaker Notes

    Stringent grape selection, partial hand-picking and French oak aging in three to four year old barrels all help distinguish this multi-dimensional. Well-balanced wine, one decidedly worthy of the reserve designation. The bouquet is layered with aromas of pear, citrus and vanilla. On the palate, intense lime fruit delivers zing against a soothing backdrop of toasty vanilla French oak to create a rich mouthfeel with immense persistence. The wine has the pedigree to age with dignity. It can be drunk young or aged up to five years.

    Wairau River, New Zealand
    Image of winery
    Established in 1978, the Rose family estate vineyards are situated on the banks of the Wairau River. Low crops and ripe fruit produce wine that has become renowned for exhibiting intense fruit characteristics and classical elegance. “The philosophy that we pursue has always been one of elegance and fruit power with the foundation of the style being drinkability. We put a lot of store in the selection of flavors in the vineyard, subsequent small batch vintning and the final touches of the marriage are created at the blending table."
