Cable Bay Vineyards has released two new Rosé wines with reinvigorated labels that showcase hand painted designs representative of the innovation and passion that takes place behind the scenes at the Waiheke Island-based vineyard and restaurant.

The Waiheke Island Rosé has been produced using 100 percent Merlot grapes, and partially wild-fermented to create a complex and focused style, while the new Rosé from the Awatere Valley in Marlborough has been made using organically-grown Pinot Noir grapes, and offers a fleshy, vibrant style.

The labels were conceptualised and hand-painted by Hoyne Design, Australia and are reflective of the personalities of the individual ferments. The Waiheke Rosé label features a woman’s face, surrounded by earthy botanical flowers and represents ‘nature’s perfection’ against an edgy and moody backdrop, whilst the Awatere Valley label highlights the delicate florals of this generous wine, as the pain drips down from the petals.
