Rosé 2016

£33.00

Delicate flavours of caramelised toffee, with a hint of rhubarb, and red berries, and strawberries and cream.  Soft tannins that come through from the maceration process. Mid-level acidity. Long finish.  Great for all round summer and winter drinking, with or without food.

Our Rosé is made from one particular parcel of our Pinot Noir grapes. The grapes are low yielding Burgundy clones that are of exceptional quality.  3 years on the lees.

For this vintage we de-stemed and macerated the grapes and let them stand in the vat for just 16 hours before pressing. This allows some tannins and colour to bleed out of the grape skins, which gives the wine its’ amazing ripe red berry flavours, of cherry, strawberry, and loganberry.

Sparkling rosé and rosé Champagne are normally made, simply by making a standard white wine, and then adding red wine to it at bottling. The Grand Marques however use this maceration method.
