Leftfield Rosé, Hawke's Bay

Leftfield Rosé, Hawke's Bay

SKU: 31448

A blend of Merlot, Pinotage (more common in South Africa) and Arneis (an Italian white) – a truly left field assemblage ! Fermentation in stainless steel tanks was stopped to retain some of the grapes' sugar to provide some richness on the palate. It shows bright, ripe strawberry, raspberry and cranberry fruit and plenty of freshness on the finish. Great with chicken, pasta and salads.
