Bewertung MIDDLE-EARTH Pinot Meunier Rosé 2020Cameron Douglas MS: 91/100 (Premium: A wine with special qualities). Fresh, bright and youthful aromas of red apples and cherries, a layer of flowers and soft mineral core. On the palate - vibrant and fresh with mouth-watering acidity then flavours that reflect the nose, a youthful tart fruit note adds length and vibrato. Best drinking from today and through 2022.


review MIDDLE-EARTH Pinot Meunier Rosé 2020Christina Pickard, Wine Enthusiast (USA): 90/100. Pinot Meunier is rarely seen in New Zealand, especially on its own, but it works brilliantly for rosé. It's bright and fruity, bouncing with strawberry, watermelon and a stalky, white spice note. There's oodles of acidity on the palate and ripe, fleshy red berries. It's a refreshing little number, with tingly fruit right to the finish.


Tasting note

Provence Pink in colour, this mouth filling medium bodied wine has a generous nose of pomegranate, rasberry, citrus and rhubarb. Just a hint of sweetness on the mid palate bolsters these fruit flavours which are chased by a juicy acidity and saline note which speaks of our coastal proximity, stretching the wine out to a long dry finish.

Winemaking: Made from 100% Pinot Meunier, the fruit for this wine was harvested in cool of pre-dawn on the 21/3/2020. Once destemmed at the winery the fruit was transferred to a press where it was held very briefly extracting not only flavour and a little colour but fine phenolics. The juice was then pressed off skins and sent to tank for settling. Once clarified the juice was racked to tank for ferment, the juice was inoculated with yeast chosen for the fermentation aromatics it liberates. The ferment was kept cool to maintain a civilized pace and preserve the glorious aromatics. As the residual sugar remaining in the wine crept into the single digits the entire team began tasting the wine together - searching for the moment the wine fell into balance. Bottled on the 1st of July – capturing the wine's youthfulnesse.
