This wine is bright light salmon colour with a charming and vivacious nose of ripe peaches, pomegranate and spices, leading into a mouth filling, smooth palate. The finish is fresh, clean and refreshing. Opawa Rosé is a dry wine that is a perfect aperitif or accompaniment to fresh summer cuisine.
Meaning "smoky river" in Maori, Opawa is a vineyard located on the old river bed of the historic Opawa River in Marlborough. The stony river gravels absorb the sun's warmth during the day, radiating it back onto the grapes at night, evolving the delicious aromas and flavours in these wines.
Our grapes are picked in the cool of night, under the moonlight, to ensure these pristine flavours are perfectly preserved in our wines.
