Established in 1978, the Rose family estate vineyards are situated on the banks of the Wairau River (pronounced "why-raow"). Low crops and ripe fruit produce wine that has become renowned for exhibiting intense fruit characteristics and classical elegance. This wine is made from Pinot Noir grapes from the Rapaura Vineyard, Crusher Block, Home Block Vineyards and winemaker Sam Rose's vineyard.
