Esk Valley Rose 2010

Esk Valley Rose  2010
This dry style Rosé is widely regarded as New Zealand’s premium Rosé, having won many awards over the years since its first vintage in 1991.
 
Aromas of strawberry and red fruits predominate while a hint of spice from the inclusion of a small percentage of Malbec adds complexity. The wine is full bodied with excellent acidity and freshness.

Wine Notes

Winemaker Notes: The juice for this wine was given a brief period of skin contact to extract the necessary colour, before being drained from the skins and fermented as a white wine.

The fermentation was conducted at cool temperatures to retain the vibrant red fruit flavours, always found in our Esk Valley Merlot/ Malbec Rosé.

The ferment was stopped when almost dry, leaving a small quantity of residual sugar to balance the finished wine.

Filtered soon after fermentation, the wine was bottled as soon as possible to capture the essence of the 2010 harvest.
