O:TU Merlot Rose
Vibrant dark rosé colors, crimson hues. Luscious aromas of strawberries, raspberries, and cherries on the nose. Light bodied with a very fragrant and mouth appealing texture that has length and body – clean and crisp. The cuddle of river and hillside, and a touch of breeze from Pacific Ocean bless this area with alluvial soils, warm temperatures and low rainfall. With the old Ngaruroro River meandering through and nourishing the region, the free draining soil supports high quality wines of both consistency and complexity.
"Very fruity, expressive and plush with aromas and flavours of red melon, sweet raspberry and light red plum; loads of youthful acidity and steely freshness. Lots to like, balanced and well made." – 89 Points, Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier
