Poderi Crisci Rosé 2021
- Merlot Rose
- New Zealand, 750ml
A beautiful light pale colour, the nose is very fresh and pure. Floral notes, red forest berries and wild strawberry. Good soft but full palate, with a nice underlying flintiness providing great structure, wild strawberry and a touch of quince followed by a hint of citrus peel on the very long and lively finish. A dry Rose in the best southern European style that works so well for lunch.

Immersed in the art of food and wine for four generations, the Poderi Crisci winery is an invitation to appreciate the finer things in life, a destination with layers of experience. A family-owned vineyard with flair for all things Italian and a passion for traditional winemaking, this slice of Tuscany in the infamous Waiheke Island wine region will transport you to a simpler time just by tasting their wine!
Napoli-raised Antonio Crisci arrived in New Zealand in the early 90’s, quickly making a name for himself in the Auckland hospitality scene while setting his sights on a winery where tradition would meet innovation and give people a taste for distinctly Italian wine blends. Planting the very first merlot vines in early 2000, the family have stayed true to old world styled wine and grape varieties, while providing the ultimate winery experience for locals and tourists alike.
Time-honoured traditions and commitment to flavour are just a few reasons why “things just taste better at Poderi Crisci”.
