The 2018 vintage was a glorious one. Perfect weather conditions throughout the season led to the hand harvesting of grapes that were bright, full of ripe fruit flavours and fresh English acidity.
Once the grapes were in the winery, they were gently whole bunch pressed to delicately release the juice. This was followed by cool fermentation with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks.
Provencal is style, this Rose is summer in a bottle. The key style considerations in the making of this wine were to showcase the delicate, silky smooth, aromatic flavours of the fruit whilst carefully balancing the fine acidity.
Soft, pale pink with golden hues.
Delicate aromas of citrus fruit, orchard flowers and strawberries are carefully balanced with an undertone of subtle spice.
The aromas on the nose are followed through to the palate where the wine really opens up and shows its elegance. Flavours of lime combine with the others and the wine finishes with a delicious persistence and appealing length.
The finesse and balance of this wine makes it appealing now but with careful cellaring, this wine will keep for up to 3 years.
