Monowai Pinot Noir Rosé 2021

Fresh ● Fruity  Strawberry

Tasting Notes

A fresh fruity rosé with a lifted bouquet of fresh ripe raspberries, cranberries and strawberries followed by a silky smooth palate with a crisp lingering finish and hints of juicy watermelon.

Winemaker's Notes

Our younger vine Pinot Noir is perfect for making Rosé and is typically the first batch of fruit to be picked at harvest as we are looking for plenty of primary fruit, good acidity levels and moderate sugar levels. The grapes are machine harvested, crushed and pressed straight to stainless steel tanks and this is enough time to pick up just the right amount of gorgeous pink colour. The juice is then inoculated with yeast and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve all the primary fruit aromas. The ferment is stopped with a small amount of residual sugar to balance the natural acidity. The wine has been filtered and minimally fined to ensure its purity and freshness and to preserve the delicate colour.

Region: Hawke's Bay

Food Match

The Monowai Pinot Noir Rosé is all about fun, fruit and freshness. This wine exhibits so many of the red fruit flavours and aromas associated with a red Pinot Noir, while having none of the tannin and all of the acidity. Our Rosé is a wonderful apéritif but also compliments a wide range of meals, especially those served in the sunshine. • Hummus, crudités & flatbread • Charcuterie platter • Roast Salmon with wild rice • Quiche Lorraine with a garden salad •
