Sometimes when making a wine, there are elements other than pure fruit that I want to showcase, such as texture and complexity. These diverse single vineyard wines, of tiny production, are released under our Vineyards range.

Where the Waihopai Valley meets the Wairau Valley, some of our oldest vines are grown by Jeff and Vanessa Hammond at Comelybank Vineyard on gently undulating, well-drained soil of stony alluvium from the undissected older terraces. The Astrolabe Pinot Rosé is made from Pinot Noir grapes grown at Comelybank Vineyard as well as a small portion of Pinot Gris.

A fast ferment for the Rosé, with a high level of grape solids and a warm temperature, to create a complex aroma and reduce the dominance of the varietal fruit. It is savory, textural and very dry.

Color: A delicate shade of rose gold.

Aroma: Quince and rhubarb creme brulee rosewater and bottled stonefruit.

Palate: Medium-bodied dry wine with round, mouth-filling flavors of crabapple jelly and quince paste.

Cellaring: Best enjoyed while young and fresh, though made to age gracefully.

Food Matching: Light salad or pasta dishes, paella, charcuterie, prawn cocktail, and grilled halloumi.

Closure: Screw Cap
