The Silent Pool Rosé has become something of a local cult favourite here in Surrey. Made from 59% Pinot Noir and 41% Pinot Meunier grown biodynamically at Albury, the 2017 has been released to rave reviews and sports a smart new look for the Surrey producer.
With its pale salmon-blush colours, the Silent Pool opens with a beautifully feminine nose of fresh raspberry, cherry and a twist of citrus.
It’s instantly gratifying to taste, beginning with a zesty fusion of pink grapefruit, lemon zest and tangy redcurrant. The wine opens up with ripe strawberries, white peach and creamy textures on the mid-taste.
The relatively high proportion of Pinot Meunier is what makes this wine shine, lending a subtle, earthy nuance that elevates it above your standard pink summer sipper.
