Description

"Giving Provence a run for its money! Squeaky clean with perfumed florals, attractive strawberry and bright cherry notes; a beautifully vibrant, bracing acid core with a fleshy, rounded texture" Decanter Asia Wine Awards 2018

This single vineyard wine displays the typical attributes of a well-crafted, traditionally made Rosė – aromatic, with a soft creamy palate and a refreshing finish. It’s a wine which is perfect for a summer’s afternoon – or to remind yourself of one in the dark depths of winter. Aromas of strawberry and rock melon with spice and stone fruits. Strawberry again on entry with raspberry and apple. Soft and nicely structure with mouth-watering, tangy red fruits. Lively and balanced - dry finish.

After crushing and a short period of time on skins (to extract the delicate pink hue found in the wine), the grapes were pressed and the juice inoculated. Fermentation of this Rosė took place at low temperatures to retain the fruity appeal of the style. The wine spent time on lees with periodic stirring to increase weight and volume, then lightly fined and bottled.

Food Pairing: This Rosė would be a perfect accompaniment to a summer picnic or alongside spicy Indian cuisine.

Not bad for a Rose , but you can’t make a decent Rose from Pinot Noir Grapes , the best Rose is made in France

A very nice Rose on a hot day. It doesnt have much of a lingering after taste but that is probably for the good as a light lunch time drink.
