Mt Rosa Gibbston Central Otago Rosé (2021)

Hand-harvested from mature vines at Gibbston, the 2021 vintage (4*) is a single-vineyard blend of Pinot Noir (60 per cent) and Gamay Noir (40 per cent). It was mostly lees-aged for three or four months in tanks, but 10 per cent of the blend was fermented in old French oak casks. Bright pink/pale red, it is a delicious, vibrantly fruity wine, with strong, energetic plum and red berry flavours, appetising acidity and a fully dry (1-2 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish.
