Gran Rosé

This is a "wow" rosé every time. Lively, fruity, almost tingly, but with a lot more presence underneath than any rosé has a right to have.

More about this wine

You might buy it once as a curiosity, but you'll definitively come back for a case out of the sheer deliciousness of it.

In Depth

The must for this Merlot rosé is obtained from the free-run juice of the crushing and de-stemming and a very gentle subsequent pressing. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 18–20°C. In order to maintain characteristic freshness and flavour, the wine is not permitted to undergo malolactic fermentation.

Tasting Notes

Colour: A brilliant coral rosé.

Bouquet: Delicately flirtatious, fresh and harmonious. Subtle fragrances of wild-strawberry.

Palate: Refreshing, dry, fruity and harmonic with a vivid attack, good length and savoury finesse on the finish.
