Harvest

2021 saw some late spring frosts that affected sites across the south of England, so yields were reduced across the board. The summer presented growers with some serious challenges as the mild and often wet weather meant the vines were susceptible to disease. The grapes ripened slowly and although it was not a big harvest

Tasting notes

A bright and vibrant nose of pomegranate, raspberries and strawberries, with a hint of freshly cut hay giving it a savoury edge. The palate has a lovely texture and lingers in the mouth. 2021 was challenging and we were only able to make a small volume of Rose this year, so don’t delay, buy it today.

Winemaking

We made the decision not to repeat the STILL wines of 2020 with one exception. This Rose, made from a blend of the finest Pinot Precoce, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, was pressed and cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks, lightly filtered and put straight to bottle retaining the vibrant fruit characters.

CASE - 6 x 75cl.
