Tell me more:
This wine was named after my dear Gran, Emiline May Reschke – who lived on our family property until she was 99. She was an accomplished dressmaker and designer, teacher, bridge and scrabble guru and professional floral artist.
Aside from being the prettiest wine our Emily May Rosé has an amazing fruit intensity. It's the bomb, well actually more like a fruit bomb but without the sweetness. This one has a couple of grams of sugar, which is still very little compared to most. Because we get the natural sweetness from the fruit, there is no need to add lots of sugar. It's only added to balance out the natural acidity that you get from growing Spanish varieties in a cool climate.

Style & Character:
This year’s vintage is a Spanish variety called Tempranillo (pronounced Tem-pran-ee-oo.) It was such a good year the colour from the skins popped out faster than expected hence, it's almost neon glow.
This Rosé has amazing fruit intensity. It's got an intense pink colour to it, and massive Turkish delight (think rose petals), raspberry, and strawberry flesh notes. This is one you are going to fall in love with
Look out for:
Strawberry, Turkish delight, and raspberries in this dry wine.
So how do I serve it?
Rose should be served at a cool 10°-14° Ideally chill for the wine and 30 mins prior to serving and bring it out ready to pour. As the wine sweats the aromas and character change with it as the temperature rises.
What pairs well with this?
The fruitiness and soft, delicate flavours and mouthfeel make this wine ideal with seafood such as seared tuna or salmon, crayfish, or delicately cooked meats such as rare lamb. She also pairs well with a grazing platter filled with creamy cheeses.
How long will it last?
Not very long because it’s so gosh darn tasty, but if you don’t drink it all in one sitting, Emily May Rose when stored in the fridge can last for about 3- 4 days

- This wine is Vegan friendly
- Has low levels of residual sugar
