Stonecroft Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Undressed Rosé (2021)

Certified organic, the 2021 vintage (3.5*) is preservative-free: "the first Rosé we have made with no added sulphur." Made from Syrah, machine-harvested in the Gimblett Gravels, it was matured for four months on light yeast lees. Pale red, it is slightly less aromatic and vibrant than many Rosés, in a highly distinctive, medium to full-bodied style, flavoursome, generous, gentle and smooth. It tastes ready.
