Tasting Notes

Sure to be another winner this summer is the new Pinot Noir rosé from our friends at TWR. Once again we have purchased every case we could get our hands on of this tiny production wine with a total of 105 cases produced! This year the wine is sourced from a single hillside block of the Rawiri vineyard in Marlborough’s Omaka Valley. Saignée style, fermented all in stainless steel at cool temperatures to retain lifted floral aromatics and bright berry flavors. Some time on fine lees helps build texture and a savory complexity; ripe, juicy acidity keeps the whole thing dancing on the palate. (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L NZ wine buyer)

    Don't let the bright color of this fuchsia beauty deter you from picking up this fantastic rosé! This is 100% Pinot Noir rosé from Marlborough, made using saignée. There is such a pretty nose of juicy cherry and strawberry. It's crisp, dry and perfect for light summer fare. Delicious!

    Darker in color than the last vintage, but all kinds of character! This year's TWR Rose of Pinot Noir does not disappoint- red cherry, red plum, red currant, strawberry and spice with medium plus acidity and great balance. Looking for a rose to compliment your BBQ'ed ribs, salmon, chicken or steak- or perhaps a plate of cheese & charcuterie? Give this puppy a try! YUM!

    This year's rosé is rather different from last year's, but just as delicious! While the 2015 rosé boasted lighter, classic Provencal style, the 2016 is much darker in hue, made in saignee style from the Rawiri vineyard. The wine shows lovely blackberry and raspberry notes, with some heft and weight. It's still quite dry, but with a peppery spice and richer fruit component that makes this an ideal food wine. Try this with lighter poultry dishes, veggie dishes, and salmon.

    There is no more perfect way to usher in the warmer weather than with a fantastic Rosé from one of our favorite NZ producers, TWR. Darker in color than the 2015, this vintage showcases the standout qualities of the single vineyard this wine is sourced from in Marlborough. Rich, juicy fruit is king is this Pinot Noir Rosé, which has a touch of acidity and minerality to balance it thanks to New Zealand’s cool climate. An excellent choice for a spring or summer dinner, this wine can hold its flavor against many different dishes. This is definitely one of the top Rosé picks in the store!
