Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are traditional grapes of the Champagne region. Often grapes used for our sparkling wine portfolio, this is the second vintage where we have brought these varietals together in a still wine.
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.
The 2019 Rosé’s light body and delicate fruit need a pairing of equal weight. A salad featuring roasted nuts, fresh peach and a light vinaigrette would be a great match. In terms of protein, think along the lines of grilled scallops, or oven roasted chicken with rosemary. For cheeses, keep things light and fresh with mascarpone or a whipped goat cheese.
