Smith & Sheth Cru Heretaunga Rosé of Syrah (2021)

The bright, light pink 2021 vintage (5*) is a delicious blend of Syrah (94 per cent) and Viognier (6 per cent), grown mostly at Mangatahi, hand-picked, cool-fermented in tanks, and and barrique-aged. Finely scented, it is full-bodied, with vibrant watermelon, strawberry and spice flavours, a hint of apricot, good complexity and a dry, persistent finish.
