Head along to the Coopers Creek winery in North Auckland on a Sunday arvo in summer and you’ll be treated to some Sunday Summer Jazz sessions. While punters are getting down to some skeep-beep de bop-bop beats most of them will have a glass (or bottle) on hand of this light, refreshing Rosé!
Produced with Malbec and Merlot grapes that are literally grown over the fence in one of their Kumeu vineyards. It’s a style that Winestate magazine’s Michael Cooper said“Full of drink-young charm, this West Auckland rosé is a 2:1 blend of malbec and merlot. Bright pink, with fresh, floral aromas, it is lively and medium-bodied, with strawberry and spice flavours, a hint of peaches, balanced acidity and a dry finish” and gave it 4 stars.
Just the wine to bust out chilled from the fridge during those warmer months but, heck, don’t let it stop you any other time of the year!
