ME by Matahiwi Estate Rose2019

This is a vibrant cool climate Rose, pale pink in the glass with aromas of strawberry and melon on the nose. The palate is lively with raspberry and stone fruit flavours, subtle creaminess and a long fresh finish. Excellent on its own or with crayfish, prawns and salmon.

 

Vineyard

The fruit for this Rose comes from our home vineyard Matahiwi, a raised ridge of stony soil outside Masterton in the Wairarapa. The free draining soils and cool dry climate are ideal for ripening the Pinot varieties.

 

Winemaking

We harvested the fruit in the fresh fruit flavour spectrum ideal for Rose, with the majority being pressed off and cool fermented, while a smaller portion spent more time on skins for added colour. The component wines spent the winter on lees to gain complexity and mouthfeel before the blend was assembled in the spring.
