Giesen Estate Rose 2016 (6 x 750mL), Hawkes Bay NZ.


Merlot grapes from the prominent Hawke’s Bay region were picked when perfect for Rosé, before going through a light Champagne press cycle reducing time on skins so minimal colour was extracted. The juice was then treated as a white wine, where it was settled, racked and fermented cool and clear to preserve the fruit aromas. A light milk and protein fining to preserve brightness was performed.

Vintage conditions

The 2016 vintage conditions in Hawke’s Bay were perfect for making Rosé, a good flowering lead to near perfect bunch formation. The summer was cool with Autumn coming early. The fruit flavours and acids in these parcels lent itself to be picked for Merlot Rosé. An early fruit thin meant the concentration picked up for the all important pick.
