WINE REVIEW

It’s great to see Greyfrairs Vineyard diversifying and continue to experiment with new wines in their range. This wine is their first ever still rosé, made from 100% Pinot Noir Precoce from their most recent plots planted in 2014.

The wine has a lovely colour to it with copper and light pink tints. A fresh light nose of redcurrant, cherry and strawberry with slight hints of pepper and citrus.

To taste, this is a classically dry English rosé, with quite a tangy cranberry and raspberry flavour up front. Ripe strawberry and cherry notes then start to come out, with a hint of zesty citrus keeping it dry and fresh throughout.

The wine also has a surprising length, with a drying cranberry finish.

A really competent first rosé from Greyfrairs, and one that continues in the vein of their sparkling wines which offer exceptional dryness combined with precise fruit character.
