2021 Saorsa 'Rose of Syrah' Rose
This is a rose unlike many of the typical ‘quick to market’ wines from New Zealand, it’s been given the full monty. Hand harvested from vines managed by Alex (owner/winemaker) in Esk Valley, Hawkes Bay and gently whole bunch pressed. The juice was then left to slowly ferment in old, over sized barrels for the winter with (as always), no fining or filtration.
This is a wine to show Rosé can be taken seriously. There is the usual Strawberry watermelon thing going on, but it's seriously dry and structured. Not the rose quencher you might be used to, it would really benefit being served with food and in good company. PS once you’ve enjoyed the wine the bottle makes for a great reuse.
