Roaring Meg Pinot Noir Rosé 2022
Roaring Meg Pinot Noir Rosé 2022 has a bouquet of lifted white floral and strawberry notes initially and blood orange and red cherry fruit behind. Bright, ripe blood orange and ruby grapefruit flowing into plush stonefruit on the mid-palate. Drier in style, this Rosé is elegant and fine with a long finish. Serve chilled for maximum enjoyment.
Roaring Meg Pinot Noir Rosé is at its best within two years of release.
The 2022 season swung the pendulum again for Central Otago. This season was characterised by a very warm summer, punctuated by vital rain events, culminating in a bumper crop tat was harvested 1-2 weeks ahead of long term average. The benign, warm flowering conditions in December resulted in excellent fruit set and healthy canopies that galloped through a dry January. They were replenished by rain in February before harvest began in mid-March and was wrapped up by mid-April.
This was the first wine picked this vintage, and coincidentally the first wine bottled for us in 2022. Roaring Rosé is all about brightness, vibrancy and purity of our Pinot Noir fruit and doesn't disappoint in 2022. Harvested in the cool of the morning, the fruit was gently pressed once in the winery followed by a racking to a cool fermentation with aromatic yeast. The wine was blended and bottled soon after vintage to capture that brightness.
