"Rabbit Ranch Rosé 2017, Central Otago – Made from Pinot Noir with a light salmon and apricot hue. Aromas and flavours of Pinot Noir with a very fruity and lush red apple and sweet cherry, a rose and red apple layer then a crisp pristine acidity. Plump texture, balanced acidity, strawberries and cream note and decent finish. Drink now and through 2018."

"Pristine and brightly fruited, the fabulously expressed bouquet shows watermelon, red apple, rockmelon and lemon zest characters, leading to a finely textured palate that is focused and elegantly fruited. The wine is delicate yet flavoursome, and finishes lingering and mouth-watering. A lovely dry style. At its best: now to 2019."

“While my focus is firmly on the contents, I have to admit that this bottle will look a million bucks gracing any table. There is something wild yet beguiling behind the floral nose, and lip-smacking chewiness that leaves you salivating for more, with freshness that screams summer sipping. Great as an aperitif, but enough weight to
"Rabbit Ranch from Central Otago have produced a particularly good example in 2017 - a beautiful, salmon-hued Rose in the Provencial style, this Pinot Noir Rose is refreshingly dry, with gentle acidity and minerality."
"From Central Otago winery Rabbit Ranch comes one of the most anticipated drops of the season. The heavenly pink 2017 Pinot Noir rosé is perfect for guzzling in summer. It's made entirely from Central Otago fruit, lightly pressed to extract just enough colour to deliver a sensational Provençal-esque pale pink rosé. It's fresh, floral and gives off sweet candy and strawberry notes across the palate."
