Judges Comments:

Esk Valley, under the guidance of the legendary winemaker Gordon Russell, made terrific Rosés many years before Rosé became oh-so-fabulously trendy. Unlike most, this is made from Merlot, grown in cool sites in Hawke's Bay to retain its freshness and vibrant charm. Mid-pale-pink in colour with ripe cherry and stone fruit flavours with a hint of savoury touch.

Pairing Recommendation:

This sunshine in a glass wine offers myriad of options  great with antipasto platters and much more. Watermelon, mint and feta salad? Brilliant. Christmas ham with sticky glaze? Of course. Sushi with all kinds of fillings? Absolutely. Rosé offers juicy fruit intensity, which goes splendidly well with soft cheeses like brie and mozzarella, as well as a heart-warming spicy roasted-tomato soup.
