Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are traditional grapes of the Champagne region and are most often paired together in a sparkling wine. Though we often use these grapes for our sparkling portfolio, 2019 marks the second vintage where we have brought Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier together for a still wine. The result is a crisp and well balanced rosé.
Spending a short time on skins at the start of fermentation, the 2019 Rosé is a delicate, pale coral colour. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, this wine has a fresh and fruit driven feel with elegant structure.
On the nose, subtle orchard blossom opens up into more expressive notes of white cherry, peach and nectarine, complemented by a touch of guava. Bright stone fruit follows through on the palate alongside a pleasant hint of mandarin. Dry with a lighter body and a fantastic acidic backbone, this wine has an elegant, smooth finish.
