Rosé

Southern Valleys, Marlborough

Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Syrah, Riesling

Predominately Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, this Rosé is Provencal in color, with a slight copper hue. A fresh and stylish New Zealand Rosé, full of crushed strawberries, orange blossom, watermelon rind, with a salty mineral core. Elegant and well-balanced, this wine shows undertones of tangelo, oyster shell, subtle spice, and macadamia nut. A dry finish with a pinch of salt.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Owner David Clouston spent a lot of time in southern France and Corsica making Rosé wines in the French style. This authentic New Zealand style is a dry, pink wine that showcases the cool climate and ocean air of Cloudy Bay and the Marlborough wine growing region. This is a fun blend from certified sustainable vineyards that stands out from the crowd with an individuality you will come to expect from the Black Cottage wines.

Sauvignon Blanc

Wairau and Awatere Valleys

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc needs a cool climate with a lot of sun shine, Marlborough has both attributes in spades. This Sauvignon Blanc from Black Cottage is expressive with a nose full of fresh yellow grapefruit, apricot, cucumber, gooseberry, and tomato leaf. The lively palate is packed full of citrus, stone fruits, and white pepper. A delicious line of salinity with a refreshingly dry finish completes this harmonious wine.

Pinot Noir

Southern Valleys, Marlborough

Pinot Noir

The gently rolling hills of the Southern Valleys in Marlborough offer up a Pinot Noir of distinction. The savory components highlight perfectly the ripe, crunchy dark red fruits. The aromas express black cherry and pomegranate, with forest floor, violet, and chai spice. Partial whole cluster fruit highlights the minerality at the core with pink peppercorn and crushed rock.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Sourced primarily from a single estate vineyard in the Southern Valleys of Marlborough comes this vibrant Pinot Noir made with partial whole cluster. The hillside vineyard generates more ripeness in this cool valley, and 3-6 months in French oak barrels cultivates nuance in the delicate nature of the fruit. David's experiences working in prestigious wineries in Willamette, California, and France help guide his team to fine turn these flavors.
