This is a refined and elegant rosé with subtle notes of red berry fruit and a soft creamy finish on the palate. It is made the best quality Pinot Noir grapes sourced from Essex.
In the glass it shows a pale colour just kissed with the slightest hint of salmon pink.
The nose presents aromas of delicate red berry fruits, strawberries and raspberries. This is followed by red berries on the palate with good balanced acidity and structure from the red fruit combined with a mouth-watering acidity and a lingering finish. Perfect served chilled with seafood and light pasta dishes.
The grapes received minimal handling to preserve the flavours. Fermentation was in 100% stainless steel to retain the freshness. Malolactic fermentation was inhibited to promote the primary fruit character of the wine, with 6 hours of skin contact given to enhance colour extraction. The fermenation was cool with extended fine lees ageing to add structure to the mid palate and promote a rounded finish.
