2019 Pinque Rose

Our classical dry style Rose comes from hillside vineyards surrounding the beautiful Cactus Bay and Owhiti Beach on Waiheke Island along with Merlot and Malbec from Ponui Island. Similar to previous years, we select parcels of Merlot, Malbec and Syrah specifically for the Rose
before pressing them gently over 7 hours to produce pure pale juice for cold fermentation in stainless steel. Blended from a number of
batches the resulting wine is made up of 54% Merlot, 26% Malbec and 20% Syrah.

Our Pinque Rose wine is remarkably consistent year on year and
the 2019 is no different. Pale salmon in colour with fresh and
inviting red berry characters matching a clean, crisp and fresh
palate. The 2019 Pinque is a perfect all season aperitif or served
as a refreshing taste of summer!
