Greystone Waipara Rose 2014 $25.50

Located at the foot of the Teviotdale Hills on the western side of the Waipara Valley is a series of fossil-studded vineyard slopes known as “the golden mile”.  The pinot noir used to make this rose grows here.  100% clone 115 grapes are handpicked, gently pressed and put to barrel to be fermented in barrels slowly, with wild yeasts.  Five of th 11 barrels used, were ‘aged’ underwater (yes, ‘underwarter’) through the spring and summer to produce a wine oozing with baked cherry and raspberry tea flavours and boasting a dry, tangy finish.  Smooth, generous and lengthy.

Sip with lamb & pomegranate salad
