“Elegantly fruited and delicately expressed, the bouquet shows crunchy apple, lemon peel, flint and subtle savoury notes, leading to a finely textured palate that’s vibrant and lingering. It’s restrained and subtle with bright acidity, finishing long and crisp. At its best: now to 2021.” – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Tasting Note: This beautiful salmon-coloured rosé shows hints of watermelon rind on the nose. The palate is bright and crisp with red fruit and berry notes including strawberry, cherry and finishes again with watermelon. A refreshing rosé for any occasion including outdoor dining, whether it be picnics or a backyard barbecues.
Winemaking Notes: This wine is a blend of Tempranillo and Syrah. It was made using a combination of direct pressing and the saignée method and vinified in steel tanks. The juice is then allowed to ferment alone at a low temperature (18-20°C/65-68°F) to preserve the maximum aroma.
