Renowned sailors, the Butterworth Family are the new custodians of Julicher Vineyard, planted in the iconic soils of Te Muna. The J-Knot on every bottle, the strongest knot you can tie, is a tribute our vineyard’s founder, Wim Julicher.
From two sites, the Butterworth Julicher homeblock on Te Muna Road and Jock’s Block on the Martinborough Terraces, this wine was made from 100% Pinot Noir. Hand tended before being handpicked, the vines were selected to be Rosé, the grapes were selected for this wine based on flavour. There were three separate picks to showcase the purity of acid, good mid palate weight, and riper flavour.
