We at Bald Hills are delighted with the Friends and Lovers Central Otago Rosé 2013, made from our famous Pinot Noir grapes. The fruit is harvested from 3-4 rows of our earliest plantings and the wine was bottled just a month or so ago. It is drinking beautifully right now and sure to be good for at least two more years.
This lovely wine smells of berry fruit and white peach. The flavours are light, the wine crisp, refreshing and dry and the colour is that gorgeous shade of pinky-red that is so attractive in the glass.
We often serve this wine to friends before dinner instead of the more usual champagne, sometimes with a strawberry on a toothpick like a cocktail and it is usually followed by seconds! Another wonderful way to serve our Rosé is alongside a bowl of fresh mixed berries with yogurt as a dessert!
This year our Rosé has been packaged in 6-bottle lots – so much more convenient to store and lighter to lift too. Pricing comes in at $150 for the 6-pack, delivered to your door in New Zealand with all packaging and handling covered.
