New Zealand Rose Wines
Although it is only a small wine producer, the quality of rosé that comes out of New Zealand is on par with some of the best in the world. The rosé that is coming out of New Zealand at the moment represents much more than just a pretty pink. Forward planning and climate control have led some of New Zealand’s family wine makers to try their hand at rosé production with more than favourable results. The main advantage that New Zealand has for rosé is its exceptional year round conditions, meaning that they are able to keep producing quantity at the highest quality. In New Zealand they make sure to pick the fruit early, and treat the grapes as if they were white in order to make the most out of them. They strive to meet that pale salmon colour, vibrancy and purity. New Zealand rosés go particularly well with salty sea foods such as anchovies and calamari.
