2021 Chloé Rosé
This very pale rose’ belies a powerfully-flavoured, persistent and layered drink and a true expression of the Provencal style. Floral notes of orange blossom and star jasmine lip from the glass together with wild strawberry and fresh pastry undertones. The palate is creamy and textured, with masses of juicy nectarine flavours and aromatic orange zest. Beautifully refreshing and very satisfying, this dry rose’ show definition and drive on the palate with a distinctive saline aftertaste.
50% Mourvedre and 50% Tempranillo. These two parcels of certified biodynamic fruit from our Hazel’s Vineyard were hand-picked in the early, cooler hours of the morning. The fruit was then refrigerated overnight and gently pressed to a stainless steel tank. Only the first and best fraction of the juice was selected, ensuring a light colour and only the most delicate flavours were extracted from the berries. A cool and slow fermentation was encouraged and after fermentation the wine spent 6 months on fine lees in order achieve texture and complexity.
