Pick Up Some Pink for New Zealand Rosé Day, Valentine’s & Waitangi Day

Not that you need an excuse to pick some pink, but this Saturday, February 5 is New Zealand Rosé Day, Waitangi Day follows on Sunday, February 6 and then it’s Valentine’s Day on February 14. So, we thought we’d shine a well-earned spotlight on our pink offerings that you might want to pick up ahead of these celebrations.

Get to Know Our Rosé

Mills Reef Reserve Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2021
This complex reserve rosé is crafted in a dry style from premium Hawke’s Bay grapes. With aromas of cherry blossom, it exudes lovely strawberry and raspberry flavours, complemented with subtle rock melon and red current notes.
The palate is textural and full-bodied, yet delicate. Fresh and vibrant, enjoy on its own or with salmon and a beetroot, snow pea and goat cheese salad.
