ŌHAU SUMMER NZ ROSÉ PROMOTION
Nothing tastes like summer more than Rosé, whatever the weather, especially when it’s a NZ Rosé wine!
For summer barbeques and garden parties, you want a wine that pairs superbly with grilled and picnic foods, and here at Sustainable Wines (UK) we have just the answer:
The 2014 Woven Stone Rosé, from New Zealand’s newest wine region, Ōhau.
It’s a beguiling blend of 91% Pinot Gris and that deep pink colour from just 9% Pinot Noir - this is a wine that will captivate your taste buds and even turn the men in the party onto Rosé!
We have had numerous male comments of ‘Oh no, I don’t drink Rosé, it’s far too sickly sweet’ – but after tasting a sample of our Ōhau Woven Stone Rosé, they always walk away with a bottle or two!
We put this down to the great balance of this NZ Rosé wine. Jane Cooper, Ōhau’s winemaker, produces this lively wine by seamlessly balancing flavours of strawberries and summer fruits with the zingy acidity and a weightier mouthfeel from the Pinot Noir… a perfect match for barbecued foods.
This is no pale or watery Rosé either – the enticing deep pink colour of this wine will prove an attractive accessory to your table at any garden party or picnic.
Ōhau vineyard’s unique position on New Zealand’s west coast of the North Island, just 90 minutes north of Wellington, has breezier conditions and lower growing temperatures than most NZ vineyard regions. This produces a long slow ripening season that results in the intensely aromatic bouquet and flavours in their wines.
So for your next summer gathering, surprise and delight your guests with the newest wine on the block – Ōhau Woven Stone Rosé. Everyone will be asking where they can get it!
Order a case now and receive a free wine bottle cooler sleeve to keep your wine at the perfect drinking temperature whether at home or in your picnic hamper!
We’d love to hear about your plans for the Summer - any more celebrations for the Queen’s birthday year? (we hear she enjoys a Rosé tipple). Celebrations for the Olympics? And remember, if you have any special summer events coming up and you would like advice regarding wine pairing, we’d be more than happy to recommend a perfect match from those available on our site! Just drop a comment on the blog!
Have a Rosé summer, everyone!
