2020 Hawkes Bay Rosé

The New Zealand falcon has been a revered guardian of our vineyards for decades. At our Riverview Vineyard on the banks of the Ngaruroro River in Hawkes Bay, we housed and trained a male and female falcon whose seemingly effortless grace held us rapt for many years.
The only remaining bird of prey endemic to New Zealand helps us with our natural sustainability program by managing pest control operations. To this day we still have a resident falcon who often visits the feeding station we’ve set up as a token of appreciation to this flying celebrity who also graces our country’s $20 bill.
It’s worth noting that just one of these bills will get you a nice bottle of Falconhead to take home…

Tasting Notes

Bright red fruits, lifted florals and watermelon aromas. The palate is freshly textured, with lovely weight and balance, and a long strawberries and cream finish. This wine is drinking well now but can be cellared.

Wine Review

Vineyards and Winemaking

The grapes were machine harvested and transported to our Riverview winery where they were pressed off immediately to limit colour extraction. The juice was settled then racked off for fermentation using a variety of yeasts but primarily Actiflore Rose. The resulting wines were transported to our Katikati winery where they were finished and bottled.
