Zesty, elegant with gravelly texture. Generous & dry.
Tasting Notes: Pale salmon in colour, this Mediterranean style rosé is savoury with fresh sea breeze aromas of rock salt and pink peppercorns, overlaying nuances of watermelon, nectarine and botanical notes of Jasmine. The zesty palate exudes orange peel, white peach and touches of coconut, rosehip and red liquorice. This elegant rosé is perfectly poised with a gravelly texture, delivering a thirst quenching, generous and dry finish.
Crops were significantly reduced due to early spring frosts and a cold, wet flowering period. Summer was incredibly dry and this lead to a very early harvest. The resulting fruit quality was outstanding and wines from the 2021 vintage might just be exceptional. Treated as a white wine in the cellar, this rosé was pressed off skins early and fermented cold in stainless steel to accentuate fruit purity. The wine was then aged on light yeast lees for two months to gain complexity and increase mouthfeel.
