Made by the highly reputable, super popular and rapidly expanding Yealands Estate down in Marlborough. Their Clearwater Cove Rosé label has always been a good, honest, reliable (and budget priced) Rose but this latest 2018 vintage is off the charts in terms of bang for buck!
A Gold medal winner at the prestigious Sydney International Wine Competition 2019 – that’s absolutely, utterly nuts to see a budget label like this take Gold at a top international wine show like that! To give you an idea other NZ labels that won Gold at that show include The Ned (around $15), Te Kairanga (around $20) and Whitehaven ($20 plus).
Seriously, the quality of most Rosé at this sort of price you come across you wouldn’t serve to the Mother-in-Law! This has to be one of the best value for money Rosés we’ve ever sold – and that’s no exaggeration!
The Sydney International Wine Competition is a wine show where wines are paired with food – the judges slurped this back with a cheeky Beetroot with Goats Cheese and Roasted Hazelnuts dish. Oooh, very nice!
On a shoestring budget for that upcoming function, party or wedding? Or maybe you’re just a tight arse that likes to spend bugger all but still be drinking decent stuff? A light, crisp, dry style with plenty of those yummy bright, juicy summer fruit flavours.
