This 2020 Still Life Rosé hails from BioGro certified organic vineyard no. 5915 in Waipara, North Canterbury. It's a dry, pale pink blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 22% Chardonnay and 8% Pinot Noir.
Grown on predominantly clay soils, with some areas of sandy loam, sandstone, limestone and gravels, each varietal was separately vinified - all were wild fermented and through full malolactic fermentation - the Sauvignon & Chardonnay were fermented and matured in aged French oak, while the Pinot Noir was fermented in steel then matured in oak too. Blended after 8 months, then 20 mg/L SO2 added a month before kegging mid-January 2020.
Stylistically this is the rosé we all want to drink - dry, bright, fresh, and pale pink - it's totally clean and perfect in every way!
We are now offering our packaging-free natural wines for online delivery.
We work closely with wineries up and down the country to bring you organic, natural wines straight from the winery to our store, and offer them to you on tap, packaging free.
We fill to order, and fill into sturdy, heavy-duty 750ml swing top bottles that you can later reuse. The wines are held under nitrogen and the bottles are pre-gassed before filling to prevent oxidation. We suggest opening the wine within 2-3 weeks of purchasing it and consuming the wine within 1-2 days of opening.
Once you've finished with the bottle pop back to either one of our stores (442 K' Road, Auckland or 177 Cuba Street, Wellington) for a refill, or use the bottles for other drinks, ferments, sauces, etc!
