Wine100% Grenache. The fruit was hand-picked before gentle de-stemming and crushing followed by 3.5 hours on skins to extract minimal colour. A cool fermentation followed which retained the aromatic, herbal notes and focussed the crisp, textural palate. Maturation on lees for 2 months helped increased texture prior to bottling. Fined in bentonite - suitable for Vegans. A pale rosé has lovely aromatic wild strawberry and cranberry notes
on the nose. The palate is tangy, dry and textural with creamy berry fruit and a deliciously moreish finish.
Tasting NoteStrawberry - Cranberry - Crunchy
