More about this wine

This sparkling rosé defies the norm. It is dry and bold rather than sweet and delicate. We used it as the apéritif wine for our Austrian wine dinner at The Gatsby in Berkhamsted in 2015 and it was received with great acclaim!

The grape used is the Sankt Laurent, a grape with bright sour cherry aromas and flavours which are typically offset by subtle tartness. This is lessened in this rosé but is still apparent in the wine although the darkness produced by the skin contact is still characteristic.

Rather than think of this wine as a possible substitute for a pink Cava or Prosecco, push it to the top of the list and only accept an alternative when this is sold out!
