2023 SV Rosé




We’ve always loved Rosé and have enjoyed consuming them for many years so this feels like a wonderful new addition to the TWR family. We wanted to make a Rosé that reflected a classic, dry, savoury style and was based on Pinot Noir.  Our favourite Rosés are lighter in colour and deliciously dry, with lifted fresh and floral fruit flavours, savoury undertones and ripe acid, so our aim was to replicate these qualities.  In keeping with our house style here at Te Whare Ra we also wanted to make a wine that showed elegance and purity of fruit but one that also was fleshy and juicy with great texture and complexity.


The 2023 SV Rosé has gorgeous lifted aromas of spring strawberry, and ripe raspberry and blueberry with pretty floral notes and hints of savoury. These follow onto flavours of fresh summer berries & blue fruits plus hints of mulberry and spices. The fruit and floral notes are balanced by some very attractive savoury complexity and ripe juicy acid. This Rosé is purposely made in dry savoury style, which combines vibrant fruit with texture and weight resulting in a delicious refreshing combination.

We feel this Rosé is the perfect pairing for a summer picnic, barbecued anything or just a chilled glass with great conversation!

Ethereal wine with ripe cherry, rose petal, lime zest and ripe apple flavours supported by fruity acidity that reacts with a whisker of sweetness to create a delicious tension. Wonderful purity and harmony. Drink 2024–2027 #2 of 29

Fragrant, floral, soft and pure fruited bouquet. Aromas of peach and ripe apricot flesh, red papaya and sweet cherry. A quiver of texture with core fruit flavours reflecting the bouquet, very fine chalky tannins and backbone of acidity to carrying echoes of red fruits and a whisper of white spice. Balanced, very well made, pure and delicious. Best drinking from 2024 through end of summer 2026.

Charming and instantly appealing with sweet strawberry, pomegranate, Gala apple and floral nuances, it’s juicy and lively in the mouth, delivering fabulous fruit intensity with bright acidity. Crisp-dry and refreshing, making it gorgeously drinkable. Certified organic. At its best: now to 2026.
