Mission Jewelstone Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Rosé (2021)

The thought-provoking 2021 vintage (5*) was made from estate-grown, hand-picked Merlot, fermented and lees-aged in French oak barrels (30 per cent new). Pale pink, it is a distinctive, classy, full-bodied wine, with strong peach, watermelon, strawberry and spice flavours, a hint of apricot, unusual complexity and a fully dry, smooth finish. It's already delicious.
