Stables Reserve Rosé

Stables Reserve Rosé

Stables Reserve offers a sense of history with its name taken from the original Stables where it all started in the heart of the Hawke’s Bay more than 100 years ago. Gentle in style, the Stables range evokes life’s simple pleasures – warmth, hospitality and conversation.

GROWING SEASON AND WINEMAKING

The growing season started warmer than average which encouraged excellent flowering and fruit set. Warm and dry conditions prevailed from December through to February ensuring ripe, flavoursome fruit in excellent condition.

The grapes were gently crushed and left for a short period to extract delicate colour and flavour from the skins before being pressed. A selection of yeasts were chosen to accentuate depth of fruit flavour and mouthfeel. The fermentation was halted just before full dryness to create a delicious, refreshing, fruit-driven wine.
