WINE REVIEW

Standing out with its patriotic label, this is the first rosé from Castle Brook vineyard in the Wye Valley. A classic blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.

A delicate pale salmon colour with lively streams of bubbles.

A refreshing, clean nose with precise raspberry and cranberry aromas, hints of citrus zest and dry pastry notes.

This is a real tongue-tingler – such a brilliant crisp acidity up front with zingy citrus and red currant flavours. But then a smoother, creamy mid-taste and texture from 3 years’ lees ageing. An excellent first release.
