"John Hancock and eldest son Willy are both winemakers. Younger son Michael is in the early stages of a career in business.

John has just completed his 48th harvest, largely in New Zealand, but with experience in the Rhone Valley, Burgundy and Australia. Willy has just completed harvest number 4 over New Zealand, California and France – Bordeaux and Sancerre.John was keen to get back to hands-on winemaking after moving more into a brand ambassadorial role in recent years. Having been involved with the Morton Estate and Trinity Hill"

Made from hand-harvested Cabernet Franc especially grown in the Bridge Pa sub-region of Hawkes Bay to make rose.

The grapes were whole bunch pressed to attain a subtle light pink colour with delicate aromas and flavors of blueberry with a restrained alcohol of 11.5% v/v. Crisp acidity is balanced by a tiny amount of retained sugar.
