Raumati, the Mãori name for summer, captures the true spirit of the handcrafted Pinot Noir Rosé from the Alexander Vineyard on the Martinborough Terrace. An inviting bouquet of raspberry, recurrent and summer fruits fills the glass leading to a refreshing, crisp classic Rosé finish.Perfect served as an aperitif or just to enjoy on that long, warm summers day.
Refreshingly vibrant and juicy, the 2016 Sauvignon shows enticing aromas of citrus blossom and lemon grass with hints of jasmine and crisp, freshly-sliced fennel bulb. This latest offering is supple and bright and, at 12.5% alcohol, is wonderfully light on its feet. Around 5% of the fruit was fermented in contact with its skins and held for two months, drawing out the more complex flavours that reside in the skins. The grape skins also contain phenolics which, combined with the natural acidity, give the fresh back bone to this wine. Adding further interest, 30% of the juice was fermented in neutral oak barrels. Our naturally low yields, older vines, small canopies and judicious, labour-intensive hand picking of the entire crop are also factors in producing this uniquely Martinborough style of Sauvignon Blanc.
After so many years of making full bodied Pinot Noir the team wanted to explore some other facets of this wonderful grape.
100% Pinot Noir from our Te Muna Rd vineyard has given us a wonderfully perfumed, strawberry aromatic wine. Left on skins for a mere 6 hours then barrel fermented in old oak a very delicate perfect blush coloured Pinot Rosé has resulted.
grava’s Rosé is produced predominantly from a single Pinot Noir clone, picked early to ensure lively acidity to back up the fruit forward characters which represent a great Rosé. The wine is given minimal skin contact in the press - resulting in a subtle salmon-coloured wine.
The 2015 grava Rosé was fermented in 500 litre puncheons to produce a fruit-driven wine with a layer of mineral complexity.
Light pink in colour, this wine has the aroma of roses, strawberries and raspberries. To the palate it is luscious, soft, full-bodied but dry with flavours of strawberries, cranberries and watermelon.
A very light basket press of their premium Pinot, light pink rose colour, hints of strawberry, white peach and melons. Made in a dry style, full and rich on the palate; a reminder of Provence.
Light peach and salmon rose hues with aromas of sweet yellow and red cherry with strawberry and raspberry highlights; simple, delicate, fruity. On the palate a dryer style with plenty of lush salivating acidity and red fruit flavours to match; a beautifully balanced crowd pleasing style yum!
Paulownia Estate Rosé is a blend of hand picked Pinot Noir and Merlot fruit. This is a summer wine that greets you with strawberries, both on the nose and in its long lingering finish. This Rosé is ideal as an aperitif, as an accompaniment to a lazy summer lunch or light dinner meal, or simply as a salute to summer at any time.
"An interesting blend of Pinot Noir and Syrah with a small percentage barrel fermented. Off/dry Rose with fine tannins giving a drying finish. Good weight and and texture with a little heat showing from high-ish alcohol of 14.5%. Interesting wine." - Bob Campbell
