Winemakers Tasting Notes
An inviting bright pink colour leads in to wild strawberry and cream flavours with a candy floss edge that offers a delicious drinking Rose from Pinot Noir grapes. A touch of residual sugar softens the acidity on the palate, providing a lush yet crisp finish. Perfect to drink on its own, this wine is delicious with brunch, lunch and a host of pre-dinner party appetizers.
Shaky Bridge Wines is located in the stunningly beautiful Alexandra Basin of Central Otago, New Zealand. Our source vineyards are situated below the 45th Parallel in the southern most wine growing region on the globe. Our location is ideally suited to the creation of the aromatic varieties of white wines, alongside Pinot Noir which is our primary variety.
Sourcing fruit from several distinct blocks that vary in age from 10 - 30+ years, Shaky Bridge Wines farms one of the oldest Pinot Noir vineyards in Central Otago. The various locations, soil types and clones used within each block provide our winemaker, Dave Grant, with a virtual painters pallet of flavours to create multi-dimensional wines of exceptional quality, depth and satisfaction.

Pinot Noir grapes are de-stemmed and crushed, then left to cold soak for 60 hours before the tinted Pinot Noir juice is fermented in stainless steel to retain the fresh and vibrant character of the fruit
Our goal with Rose is to create a brilliantly coloured inviting wine that is neither bone dry nor a candy filled sweet treat. Halting fermentation once the Rose reaches a taste-determined residual sugar level, allows us to combine just a dash of sweetness to balance the fresh acidity of our fruit, adding an extra dimension of flavour to create a deliciously easy drinking Rose.
