Cottonworth’s Rosé is a blend of the same three grapes as the Cuvée, but with a high proportion of Meunier (43%) and the addition of Pinot Noir Précoce. The wine has had a slightly higher dosage of 9g/l.
This wine opens up with a lovely soft nose with bright red fruit aromas of raspberry, cranberry and red apple.
On the palate, a really crisp bright acidity keeps it all very refreshing up front, before those gentle red berry flavours are helped along by a fine mousse and soft vanilla notes.
A hugely pleasing wine, and my pick of the two current releases from Cottonworth.
