Known for its free draining qualities, this Waipara Hills Pinot Noir Rose is right at home on the Glasnevin gravels in the Waipara Valley, North Canterbury.

The harvest of 2016 was stable and warm, allowing for slow development of flavours.

The resulting Pinot Noir Rose boasts bright red berry fruit with notes of watermelon and rose petals.

With a touch of sweetness, followed by a crisp lively finish and lingering flavours of red berries and cream, this wine is best served lightly chilled, and is the perfect aperitif for those warm summer evenings around the barbeque. (Accolade)
