Riverby Estate Single Vineyard Marlborough Rosé (2021)

The vivacious, medium-bodied 2021 vintage (4*) was made principally from Pinot Noir, blended with splashes of Pinot Gris and Gruner Veltliner. Bright, light pink, it is invitingly scented, with strong, fresh, red berry and watermelon flavours, hints of strawberries and spices, and a dryish (5.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), crisp, harmonious finish.
