PALLISER PINOT NOIR ROSE MARTINBOROUGH 21
This wine is fruity and refreshing in style with soft flavours of strawberries, raspberries and a dry finish. Like most New Zealand rosé, this one is made from Pinot Noir.
The grapes were lightly pressed into service in a quest to make this lively, light bodied rosé, which benefits from the crisp acidity of the Pinot grape, which adds freshness to and length to its fruity flavours.
Palliser Estate is the first winery on the way into the small town of Martinborough. It's one of the biggest wineries in one of this country's smallest wine regions, the Wairarapa and it makes a wide range of wines, including this incredibly popular rosé, made 100% from Pinot Noir grapes grown on the Pencarrow and Pinnacles vineyards.
The grapes were lightly crushed for a pale colour then gently pressed and fermented to dryness at less than 5 grams of residual sugar per litre, which is the technical definition of a dry wine.
Drink lightly chilled.
