Coney ‘Ramblin’ Rose’ Rose 2019

Martinborough | $29

Ramblin’ Rosé’s palate is crisp and refreshing with notes variously described as strawberries/cranberries; is rhubarb too fanciful? It is extremely suitable for the drier, food friendly style that we have been developing over the last few years. At 8g/l residual sugar it is on the cusp of frivolous sunshine – induced drinking (not uncommon in Martinborough)

Coney Wines

Martinborough

“When people ask us, as they frequently do, why two city dwellers should suddenly buy a 16 acre bare paddock in Dry River Road, Martinborough, dismiss the sheep and plant 10,000 vines by spade, the answer is palpable – we’d simply lost our marbles.

What had been envisaged as a gentle descent into middle age retirement has turned into a thriving 24/7 bustle of vinetending, winemaking, marketing and restaurateuring – each operation undertaken in the hallowed, self-flagellating Martinborough tradition – by manual labour. Be it leaf-plucking or bunch thinning by hand in the vineyard to ensure umblemished, perfectly ripe fruit, or the sheer tastiness of Margaret’s cuisine which derives from the traditional “homemade” quality of every ingredient served to appreciative diners – the Coney aim is to pay keen attention to detail.”
