We're fizzing... our Pā Road Sparkling Rosé is finally here!
After many long months of patience... we're fizzing to announce that our gorgeous Pā Road Sparkling Rosé is finally here, and ready for you to enjoy!
With it's pretty pink colour, and delicious fine bead, this is a fun and (almost too) easy to drink wine that is sure to take your festive get-togethers and gifts to a whole new level.
Want to grab a case and see what all the fuss is about? We have the wine available for sale on our online store, and we'll also be announcing new retailers right across Aotearoa-New Zealand in the coming weeks.
What it tastes like:
Aromatically this wine possesses gentle floral notes of rose petals, complemented by strawberries and cream. This delicious Rosé is delicately structured and generous.
Red fruits carry through the palate, with cranberry, peach, strawberry, and raspberry notes taking center stage. There is a hint of toasty complexity, and some creamy richness from the lees leading into a dry finish with lingering hints of spice.
What to eat it with:
This delicate Sparkling Rosé would pair beautifully with a range of decadent seafood options. Oysters, clams, whitebait, paua / abalone, crayfish, prawns, white fish and salmon would all go beautifully.
Soft cheeses such as brie and camembert would also complement the bright red fruit notes and effervescent characters of the wine.
Due to its palate cleansing properties, this Sparkling Rosé is also great for BBQs where the rich meat will be contrasted by the clean and crisp finish of the wine.
How we made it:
The Pinot Noir parcels were crushed to extract flavour and colour from the skins, then gently pressed. The juice was fermented cool in a fashion similar to white wine to ensure the delicate aromatics and the pure fruit expression was retained.
The Charmat method was used for secondary fermentation (Secondary fermentation in a pressurised stainless steel tank). This method preserves primary fruit flavours and results in a fine delicate bead.
What the critics are saying:
Sam Kim of popular wine review site Wine Orbit, gave the wine a stunning 93 points and 5 stars, calling it "fabulously enjoyable."
Cameron Douglas, NZ's only Master Sommelier rates our new Sparkling 90 points & Premium, calling it "Enticing, delicate & pure."
And wine writer Candice Chow for Raymond Chan Wine Reviews scored the wine 90 points and a 4 star review, saying; "This is a vibrant, joyful sparkling Rosé packed with strawberries, cream, and all things nice."
