The 2015 growing season was a test of good site selection and our vineyard team did a wonderful job in challenging conditions - the summer was cooler than the previous year, particularly in August which is the crucial month for veraison and the start of the ripening season. The pinots were super-ripe with wonderful flavours, good acidity levels and deep colour.
A ‘sleeper’ vintage – 2015 didn’t immediately promise great things but this wine has developed to be my favourite ever Rose.’
The Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes were hand-harvested and whole-bunch pressed, with approximately 12% of the blend being fermented in old white Burgundy barrels, and partial malolactic fermentation took place in order to soften the wine’s natural acidity. This blend is completed with 2% of Pinot Précoce (having been vinified as a still red wine), giving this Rosé extra colour, body and flavour. The wine undergoes a second fermentation in bottle and ageing on its lees for 37 months before disgorging with 9g/L dosage.
This elegant Rosé has a subtle delicate salmon hue and a soft mousse, with bright red fruit and summer berry aromas. On the palate, delicious strawberry coulis flavours, creamy texture and fine toasty notes. A harmonious wine, with extraordinary depth, freshness and perfectly balanced acidity.
We enjoy our Rosé with Cherrystone Clam Chowder served with freshly baked bread.

Dependably reassuring to receive and of course delightful to drink
Ordered on line and received great service from the vineyard would definitely order again and highly recommend
Having tasted this delightful sparkling wine - and bought some ourselves - at the end of our tasting tour (highly recommended when available, by the way), we wanted to order a couple of bottles of the Rose and also of the Classic as part of our birthday gifts to our daughters this autumn (thus not diminishing our own stocks!). They won’t be the last.
I ordered your wine for an engagement celebration. Although the delivery company gave me the date of 7/08/20, (I wanted it before the 08/08/20) I was really disappointed that it didn't arrive until 10/08/20. I tried to call the delivery company to see where it was but they were not working at the weekend. My son had ordered a crate of wine a little while ago and had the same problem. This is a shame as I will probably not use mail order from you again because of this. So sorry.....but the wine is fab!
