WINE REVIEW

I had been eagerly awaiting the debut wines from Black Chalk ever since the Rosé won an early Silver Medal at CSWWC 2017. Winemaker Jacob Leadley of Hattingley Valley had previously impressed us with the cult-favourite Hattingley Entice dessert wine. I’m pleased to report that the first wines released under his own label were well worth the wait!

The Wild Rosé 2015 impresses with gorgeous, subtle pale salmon colours with streams of tiny bubbles. It opens with a most appealing nose of ripe strawberry, raspberry and cherry blossom.

This wine delivers even more on the palate; balancing brisk, fresh citrus and tangy red fruit, before softening to more rounded red berry flavours.

I was impressed with how smooth this wine is with its soft, delicate bubbles, while the drying, lengthy aftertaste with lingering hints of cranberry and minerality forms the perfect balance.
