Paddons Paddock Rosé

The wine: Enjoy the best of both worlds with our Paddons Paddock Rosé, now in its second vintage. Our 2020 bottle is full of cranberry, redcurrant, guava and spice aromatics, leading to a rich and warmly textured mouthfeel – showing great balance.

The story: Did you know whenever you crush a grape, either red or white, the juice comes out clear? To give wine its colouring, it is left soaking with the skin of the grape. Rosés can come in a whole spectrum of pink, but here at Paddons Paddock, we gently crush our Central Otago Pinot Noir grapes and leave the skins soaking for three days – hence the gorgeous red colour. The resulting Rosé is less sweet than some, and full of the deeper flavours of Pinot Noir.

The winemaker: Our Rosé winemaker is Central Otago legend Dean Shaw. Dean has been making wine with grapes from more than a dozen different vineyards for 18 years, which probably makes him one of the most experienced winemakers in the Central Otago and Queenstown Lakes areas. He started his education in New Zealand before traveling to France where he studied winemaking in Burgundy, Austria and South Africa, and has worked with a number of Central Otago and Queenstown wineries.

The ideal pairing: The Rosé is beautiful by itself on a warm evening, or with light appetisers, tapas, salads or pasta dishes.

Buy our Paddons Paddock Rosé online for delivery straight to your door, by the glass at our wine bar, or enjoy as part of a wine tasting experience on our vineyard.
