About the Wine
This rosé wine is made by Te Awa in Hawke's Bay. Fruit-driven rosé, great with chicken, salads and pasta. It is created with mosty Merlot grapes. Supplied by Hatch Mansfield.
Merlot produces medium bodied, fleshy, juicy wines with round tannins. Often seen as a single varietal, or in a blend with Cabernet Sauvignon to take the hard edges off. Its grown all over the world and commercially one of the most important red grapes in the on-trade.
This grape comes from a crossing of Pinot Noir and Cinsaut. It produces concentrated wines with flavours of black and red fruits, spice, leather and chocolate.

Left Field wines are the birthplace of the unexpected, the weird and wonderful. Taking a whimsical approach to exploration, creativity and imagination. The range includes Albariño fast becoming a favourite. Its delicate aromatic notes of citrus, melon and white flower duel with the underlying briny character so distinct to this variety. Refreshing and crisp, enough yet with enough texture and weight to tempt Chardonnay devotees, could Albariño be the perfect white grape?’
