Alpha Zeta 'R' Rosato is a youthful, quaffable rose from the hills outside Verona. This wine is pale pink in colour with attractive aromas of strawberries and cherries, with subtle floral undertones. To drink, it is dry and fresh, it has a vibrant red fruit character and fragrant finish. Ideal summer drinking!

Alpha Zeta was started in 1999 when Liberty Wines set out to produce a range of modern, fruit-driven wines from the hills outside Verona. Working with leading New Zealand winemaker, Matt Thomson, their aim was to work with growers (rather than buy bulk wine, which is standard among most wines from Verona at this price) to obtain ripe grapes (by reducing yields and picking later) and then, using Matt's expertise, preserve these flavours in the finished wines. The result is a realisation of the potential inherent in Veronese viniculture.
The vineyards are situated in the hills outside Verona in the Valpantena Valley. Cool currents blow down the valley from the foothills of the Dolomites, which helps to moderate the climate, enabling the grapes to ripen slowly. This means the grapes retain their aromatic compounds and acidity. The soil is poor and chalky so the vines are put under stress which helps to produce superior quality fruit. The grapes were hand harvested, and then destemmed, crushed and macerated on their skins for about 18 hours. After maceration, the must was pressed and fermented at a relatively low temperature (14-15°C) in order to retain the delicate cherry perfumes of Corvina. The wine was held in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks until bottling to maximise freshness.
