Winemakers
Notes

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.

Tasting Notes

Savoury with fresh sea breeze aromas of rock salt and pink peppercorns, overlaying nuances of watermelon, nectarine and botanical notes of Jasmine. This elegant rosé is perfectly poised with a gravelly texture, delivering a thirst quenching, generous and dry finish.
