Ostler The Cleavage Waitaki Valley North Otago Rosé (2018)

Still drinking well, the 2018 vintage (5*) proves that some New Zealand rosés can mature very gracefully. Made from Pinot Noir and offering 'perfect summer sipping with lightly clad friends', it is a pink/orange, full-bodied wine, with very generous peach, strawberry and spice flavours, a hint of apricot, a touch of complexity and a finely balanced, dry finish. Full of personality.
