2021 Rosé Gastronomique

The Story

Time, we thought, to add another string to our Rosé bow. And time to make a darker, more structured and altogether more serious Rosé. We’re aiming for lots of structure, texture, depth & complexity – a wine that is delicious on its own, and even more fabulous with food: a Rosé Gastronomique no less. More southern Rhône or northern Spain than pale Provence. We wanted to make a “rugged wine with robust, spicy, berry flavours”. Hand-picked Malbec from 30 year old vines was crushed and quickly put through the press with only the first, finest free-run juice used; it has perhaps 15 – 20 minutes of skin contact. The juice was then cold settled for 12 days and the clear juice then racked from the solids. Fermentation was cool, but not cold, and lasted an unhurried 80 days. 3 months on lees followed allowing for texture, freshness, fullness and complexity. And then to add, particularly to the aromatics, 12.5% Riesling was blended in.

The Wine

A striking and rather beautiful ruby-garnet colour, with a lovely nose of spice, redcurrant, strawberry, raspberry and rose petals. It also has a rather intriguing savoury note reminiscent of Parma ham. On the palate its full-bodied and creamy with flavours of redcurrant, cherry and strawberry. And there’s a touch of spice and a hint of savouriness. It’s really harmonious and beautifully balanced. Very smooth and luxurious. Absolutely delicious and absolutely more-ish. And it lasts a long time – the flavour goes on and on. Drink cool but not cold.
