    Description:

    Yealands Estate is an international leader in sustainable wine production. Their wines have established a reputation as some of the best from the Marlborough region, winning many international awards and trophies.

    Bay Doll Rosé has an enticing bouquet of pomegranate, fresh strawberries and honeysuckle. A juicy, rich palate with warming flavours of strawberry shortcake, which is given focus and length by well-balanced acidity. Summer in a bottle! Gold Medal at the Sydney International Wine Competition and 90/00 from Wine Orbit.

    Variety Description

    Pinot Noir:

    Pinot Noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler regions, but the grape is chiefly associated with the Burgundy region of France. When young, wines made from Pinot noir tend to have red fruit aromas of cherries, raspberries and strawberries. As the wines age, Pinots have the potential to develop vegetal and "barnyard" aromas that can contribute to the complexity of the wine.

    Country Description

    New Zealand:

    New Zealand wine is largely produced in ten major wine growing regions spanning from north to south Northland, Auckland, Waikato/Bay of Plenty, Gisborne, Hawke's Bay, Wellington, Nelson, Marlborough, Canterbury/Waipara and Central Otago. New Zealand red wines are typically made from a blend of varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and much less often Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec), or Pinot noir. In white wines Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc predominate in plantings and production. New Zealand is home to what many wine critics consider the world’s best Sauvignon blanc

    Region Description

    Marlborough:

    Marlborough is one of the regions of New Zealand, located in the northeast on the South Island. Marlborough can lay claim to starting the modern New Zealand wine industry. Here in the late 1970s, Marlborough produced Sauvignon blanc, among other varieties, which led to confidence that New Zealand could produce interesting wine. Today, the Marlborough wine region represents 62% of total vineyard area in the country. The king varietal here is Sauvignon blanc, closely followed by Pinot noir and Chardonnay. Sauvignon blanc from Marlborough offer unique aromas and flavors, which earns them much praise from wine lovers around the world.
