Muddy Water Rose
Delicious, the vintage was made from Waipara and Central Otago Pinot Noir. Partly barrel-fermented, it is bright pink, with strong, smooth berry and plum flavours, fresh, slightly sweet and lively, with a touch of complexity and a lingering finish.
Charmian Smith, Otago Daily Times, 24 Dec 2008,
An attractive, floral wine with a hint of red berries and roses, medium sweetness and just a suggestion of barrel fermentation which adds to the texture. Best chilled.

North Canterbury winemaker Belinda Gould is a dab hand at creating a wide range of wines, including this new " Growers Series" Rose - a blend of Pinot Noir grapes grown in Waipara and Central Otago. She has fermented some of this wine in barrels, which adds substance, weight and mouthfeel to its fruity appeal.
