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.
