Clearwater Cove Rose
Parcels from the Awatere Valley and Wairau Valley together combine to create a wine brimming with varietal character, balance and elegance. This pretty, light peach coloured rosé has an enticing bouquet of pomegranate, fresh strawberries and honeysuckle. A juicy, rich palate with warming flavours of strawberry shortcake, which is given focus and length by well-balanced acidity. Beautiful with goats cheese, light summer salads or your favourite shellfish.

Hesketh Wild at Heart Rose
A pale rose petal pink with lifted and fragrant aroma of fresh strawberries, raspberries and a hint of citrus. A fresh and vibrant palate bursting with zesty acidity. Raspberry notes are prominent alongside hints of pink grapefruit and a lovely fruit sweetness. A dry and moreish finish.

Rutini Trumpeter Rose de Malbec (Sparkling)
An extremely distinctive and intense wine with delicate aromas of cherries and strawberries combined with subtle toasty notes and delicious sweet tannins. An excellent aperitif or accompaniment to salads, shellfish, pink salmon or fruity desserts. Well balanced, round and persistent.
Rutini Trumpeter Rose de Malbec (Still)
Limpid rose with a raspberry touch and lilac nuances. The subtle floral profile gives frame to the fresh red fruit notes (cherry, strawberry and gooseberry) slightly citric. A richly flavoured palate with an increasing mouthfeel and a kind aftertaste, refined and dry.
