The edge of the Wairau River is a special place for growing grapes. A place where soil, climate and terrain combine to help produce outstanding wines. Phil and Chris Rose established their vineyards here in 1978 and today the extended Rose family produce some of the best wines Marlborough has to offer. Wairau River holds the Sustainable Certification from Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand.
This is an elegant wine with intense tropical and stone fruit aromatics with delicate citrus and floral notes, full flavored and textured. The wine has fine mouthwatering mineral acidity on the finish that refreshes the palate, leaving you longing for more.
This is a strong vintage of this wine. It’s clean, refreshing and balanced, neatly weaving grass, bell pepper, passionfruit, pineapple rind and white pepper aromas together. There’s a crunchy tang and a fresh fruit finish. Marlborough savvie bee at its most thirst quenching. Terlato Wines International.
