The Lazy Dog Queensberry Central Otago ‘Shady Lady’ Rosé 2018

The Lazy Dog Queensberry Central Otago ‘Shady Lady’ Rosé 2018 $23 While I’m not a fan of the cartoony labels on the Lazy Dog wines, the actual wines inside the bottle are pretty darn stylish.  This rosé is shiny new and showing hints of creaming soda, raspberry, a nudge of nougat and some dried herbs […]

Gladstone Wairarapa Rose 2016 $25.00

I adore the pink diamond-ballet shoe hue of this gorgeous little pinot rose from down Gladstone way and I love its seductive, candied aromas and layers of raspberry, creaming soda and juicy red fruits on the palate.

Bellbird Spring Waipara Pinot Noir Rosé 2017 $26 (4 stars)

Guy Porter and his family are all hands on deck when it comes to making this unique style of rosé.  100% pinot noir grapes are crushed and fermented ultra-dry in old oak barrels to add to the complexity and character.  Mineral-driven, peppery, lipsmackingly dry – it’s a lean, clean style that’ll work beautifully with slabs […]
