Mahana Estates embraces certified organic viticulture and minimal input winemaking in their state-of-the-art gravity flow winery. The vineyards are located in the Moutere Hills and the Waimea Plains of Nelson and produce dynamic and uncompromising wines. Overseen by the expertise of winemaker Michael Glover, who is considered to be one of the top 12 winemakers in Australasia, the wines are a genuine expression of site and season and reflect the artisans who nurture them.
Following a royal visit in 2015 by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, we have brought in the Pinot Noir Rosé, which was HRH’s favourite wine during the tour. The wine has a stunningly brilliant ruby-red colour. The nose bursts with red berries which follows through onto a textured palate of strawberry and raspberry. It is vibrant, fresh and intense, with a bone dry, lingering finish. This is about as serious as rosé gets and it really demands food.
