Postage Stamp ‘Genevieve’ Waiheke Island Rosé 2016

24-Mar-2017
Postage Stamp Wines is the Waiheke Island wine foray of Auckland entrepreneur Andrew Barnes, who purchased the ‘View East’ vineyard formerly owned by the late Daren Day and his wife Brigit. The vineyard, measuring approx. 1.5 ha on Cowes Bay Road, planted wholly to Syrah was acquired by Andrew last year. The 2016 Rosé is the first wine from the site since the change of ownership, and is dedicated to the spirit of the Days. It is named after Andrew’s daughter Genevieve. Marsanne and Roussanne have been added to the vineyard, and these vines will bear in 2018, enabling the range of wine to be broadened. Earlier this year Andrew took over a similar sized Chardonnay vineyard, so will have a Chardonnay to offer in due course. The vineyards are tended by Matthew Stone, who is viticulturist and general manager of Postage Stamp Wines. The winemaker is Mike Wood, of Obsidian.
