Cable Bay Waiheke Island Rose

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage) says
Pink, medium-boiled blend of merlot and malbec, offering fresh strawberry, spice and slight apricot flavours, fractional sweetness, gentle acidity and a smooth finish.
July/Aug Winestate 2013
Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
Waiheke Island is producing excellent roses, such as the 2010 vintage. Made from Merlot and Malbec grapes, grown at Church Bay, it is full-bodied, with smooth raspberry and spice flavours, showing very good depth and texture. A 'serious' style of rose, it is designed to accompany food. The 2011 is pale pink and light-bodied (11.5 per cent alcohol), with ripe strawberry, spice and peach flavours, slightly sweet (6 grams/litre of residual sugar), crisp and lively.

Waiheke Island is producing some excellent roses, such as the 2008 vintage from Cable Bay. Made from Merlot and Malbec grapes, grown at Church Bay, it is bright pink/red, full-bodied, with fresh, vibrant, berryish, spicy flavours and a smooth (6 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. It's already delicious.

Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
Waiheke Island is producing some excellent roses, such as the 2006 vintage from Cable Bay. Made from Merlot grapes, grown at Church Bay and Onetangi, it is bright pink/red, with a fresh, floral bouquet. Berryish, plummy and spicy, with a smooth texture and slightly off-dry (5 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish, it's delicious from the start.
