NZ Rosé: How is it made?

Fruit quality is paramount for Rosé. High quality grapes maximize finesse and varietal expression.

Grapes are handled as gently as possible from vineyard to winery.

The majority of New Zealand Rosé is fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness, fruit purity and aromatic intensity.

The final shade of pink relates to the grape variety as well as the length of skin contact permitted between juice and pigment-rich grape skins.

Some Rosé is made by the saignée (to bleed) method, which is when the juice is drawn off a red wine early in its fermentation. These wines can be quite rich in colour and robust in style.
