Westwell's Ortega Rose is fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to retain freshness and purity. For this Rose we?ve co-fermented with ripe Regent to add notes of bright red crunchy fruit.
It has a nose of wild strawberries and honeysuckle with flavours of redcurrants, bramble fruits and a twist of white pepper on the finish. Delicious on its own or with seafood, chargrilled fish, salads or light pasta dishes. Best served chilled (8-10C).
With a pale salmon, Provencale hue, the Barons Lane Rose is packed full of summer fruits, red apple, white peach with a slight creaminess and a tart balanced finish.
This corner of Essex is one of the warmest paces in the UK, and is also blessed with London Clay and areas of gravel left over from the retreating ice shelf some years back both of which make for happy grapes. The acreage under vine is huge by UK standards. They have been selling grapes to larger, well-known and very commercial English wineries around England but are now determined to concentrate on their own production.
Produced from their heritage vines planted in the 1970's, this Pinot Noir Rose 2021 is the epitome of elegance. Subtle, classy and well-structured with rhubarb and redcurrant on the nose leading on to strawberry pavlova, white currant, strawberry leaf and granite-like minerality on the finish.
This is possibly Flint Vineyards pinkest and fruitiest Charmat Rosé to date, and, for the first time, the blend includes a portion of Pinot Noir and Bacchus.
The 2021 is bursting with confected strawberries and cream. But its not just all fruit: there is a slight praline nuttiness in the background, which gives the wine some complexity. On the palate it is crisp and bursting with red fruits.
Very drinkable as an aperitif and perfect for celebrations. A really lovely British drop playing the Italians at their own game. Well done Flint
