    January 21, 2017 - Perfect Rose'. Drink it well chilled. Drink up, these 2014s are getting on a bit - for Rose' - the acidity is starting to fade.

    Bought at Sustainable Wines, Potters Bar, UK.

    Love this tiny vineyard on the Kapiti Coast north of Wellington, NZ. Haven't had a dud wine from them.

    This rose' is beyond pink, it's still fresh - but fading - is lively, has a dry(ish) finish, super easy to drink. Tons of flavour.

    Already looking to buy some 2016.

    October 11, 2016 - Ohau Gravels Rose' (Woven Stone label) 2014
    Bought £7.50 promo price Sustainable Wines UK October 2016

    Brilliant. Everything I want in a Rose': finishes dry after shed loads of fruit, beyond pink, solid medium-bodied, v good with food as well as natural quaffer, being well chilled doesn't dull its flavour. Fun.

    C....beyond Pink, no insipid south of France/Provence AC rubbish here.

    N....heaps of charming strawberry, plums, raspberry.

    T....tons of fruit but balanced with cleansing acidity. Perfect picnic wine - if you can keep it chilled. I'm amazed it's still this fresh and exciting at 2 yrs old. Best Rose' I've had in ages, even a little better than the excellent Villa Maria's Private Bin Hawke's Bay 2015 Rose (£8.00 Tesco's).

    VFM? Bargain at £7.50 promo price. Worth twice that. Kicks over-priced tasteless Provence AC Rose into the ditch.

    February 14, 2016 - Tasted well chilled. Bought at Sustainable Wines, Enfield UK. Was on promo price of £10.00, which is 30% off normal retail.

    This Otaki Coast 2014 wine was everything I like in a Rose: dry, heaps of flavour, colour beyond a wimpy pink, good length and some essence of fruit, swirling acidity, a touch of tannic grip, medium body weight. Loved it.

    VFM? At the 30% discount price of £10.00, sure is VFM. Would buy even at normal retail.
