2021 Smith & Sheth CRU Heretaunga Rosé - 6 pack
Beautifully ripe Syrah and Viognier from our Mangatahi and Omahu vineyards, hand-picked in the cool of the morning, gently pressed, barrique aged.
A brilliant natural pale salmon colour. Lovely delicate flavours of fresh berries, meadow herbs, apricot and just a hint of cinnamon with complexity and breadth on the palate coming from the lees contact. Finishes with dry talcum powder tannins. A serious Rosé.
The 2021 Rosé of Syrah CRU has serious intent: barrel aged, dry, full-bodied and structured, this is no swimming pool pink. Hugely concentrated - not just in the context of Rosé but in the context of wine. If you're a somm looking for a Rosé that can handle itself in a serious food setting, here it is. - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous
