Awarded 5 Stars, 9 years in a row: Michael Cooper’s Buyer’s Guide to NZ Wines 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013
Rated as New Zealand’s only “Super Classic” Rosé - Michael Cooper’s Buyer’s Guide to NZ Wine. Cooper states “From one vintage to the next, this is one of the country’s leading Rosés the youthful 2022 vintage (5*) is principally (85 per cent) from vines planted in Sarah's Block in 1995. It was mostly handled in tanks, but 36 per cent was fermented in old French oak barrels. Pale pink, it is fresh and vibrantly fruity, with strong peach and strawberry flavours, showing a distinct of complexity, lively acidity and a slightly off-dry (5.7 grams/litre of residual sugar), very harmonious finish. Best drinking mid-2023+."

5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes 
"Fabulously elegant and delicately fragrant, the wine shows white flesh stone fruit, lemon pith, apple and floral aromas with a hint of sweet strawberry. The palate is equally charming with fine focus and silky flow, beautifully complemented by juicy fruit flavours and vibrant acidity, finishing lingering and
delightfully crisp dry. At its best: now to 2025."

Winery notes 
"Terra Sancta is a leader in the art of creating beautiful Rosé. The only Rosé in New Zealand rated a “Super Classic” by wine writer Michael Cooper, the superb quality of fruit sourced from Terra Sancta’s Felton Road Estate in Bannockburn, Central Otago and intentional winemaking result in an outstanding Rosé. With hallmark bright berry flavours, balance, energy, depth and a dry finish, this is a serious Rosé which is seriously delicious.

A gorgeous pale salmon hue, its fragrance is lifted and beguiling with hibiscus and wild red berries. A wine of great energy, it is complex and concentrated on the palate with apricot kernel, mandarin pith and provencal herbs. With distinctive minerality, it possesses lovely mouthfeel and a touch of tannin from skin contact and barrel fermentation. A seamless Rosé of great balance and poise, it has outstanding persistence."
