Seaview Vineyard

Awatere Valley

Our Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours.

Harvested Earlier

To make our Pinot Noir Rosé a small block of young vine Pinot Noir was harvested around seven days earlier than when we commenced harvest for our mature Pinot Noir vines.

This attractive Rosé reflects the wonderful typicity that our Seaview Vineyard known for.

The bright, fruit forward wine fermented in tank was blended with the rich textural wine from oak to create and elegant and well-structured Rosé.

Winemaker's Notes

Enhancing the Flavour

The Pinot Noir parcel was harvested, chilled, crushed and de-stemmed directly to the press where it soaked on skins for 12 hours in a closed inert environment. The juice was then pressed off gently and cold settled for 72 hours. A portion (10%) was dropped into older French barriques for fermentation with the majority being fermented in a stainless steel tank.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful as an aperitif or with both fresh and smoked salmon dishes. Also matches well with melon and prosciutto.

Inviting bouquet of light red fruits laced with a touch of savoury complexity, guava, red zinger tea, light red fruits and a touch of stony mineral. On the palate – just dry, silky textures and clean fresh acid bite; lush and generous with red fruit and light red tea flavours, balanced and well made.

The 2014 vintage is an instantly appealing, single-vineyard, Awatere Valley wine. Pink/pale orange, it is weighty and smooth, with fresh, generous strawberry and spice flavours and a finely balanced, dry finish.
