Rose 2018



This late 2018 release is Silverton Estate’s first-ever Rosé and two years on is at its peak for late Summer sipping. Made from 100% merlot grapes, a floral bouquet of melon varieties wafts up the nose, leading to a well-rounded palate, finished with refreshing lemon acidity. The 2019 Rosé has just been released. A drier style Rosé with a luxurious rose gold hue. It is refined yet warm and inviting.

Merlot 2015


Add some Pride to your cellar with this award-winning full-bodied Merlot wrapped in attractive rainbow packaging. Grown in a Bordeaux-esque microclimate, mixed spices and mint can be found in the fascinating bouquet that leads to a mouthful of juicy dark berries on the big fruity palate. 

Syrah 2018


For something more medium-bodied you can’t go past Silverton Estate’s Syrah grown on a north-facing terrace in the Hawkes Bay. It boasts a sweeter alluring bouquet with cranberries, blueberries, thyme, violets, a little pepper and spicy oak, washed down by silky tannins, adding texture to the juicy palate.
