At the Black Cottage we are dedicated to producing a range of wines full of ‘gusto’. Combining select parcels of fruit with modern and alternative winemaking techniques, we strive to create very special wines which are approachable and delicious.
The Black Cottage, situated in the heart of the Wairau Valley, is where winemaker David Clouston lives and spends quality time with friends and family. It is also the quiet space in which he contemplates and constructs the very special wines on which he has built a fine reputation.
This Rosé was inspired by David’s long stint working in Corsica and the South of France crafting fresh, clean, crisp and dry salmon pink Rosé. Treated very much as a white wine in the cellar, the focus has been to make a clean, fruit driven dry wine to have as an aperitif or to match lighter cuisine.
An attractive and fresh style of New Zealand Rosé. A mix of red berry and spice are balanced by a clean dry finish.
