I was very excited to try this wine after it was granted a Gold Medal in the Sparkling Rosé category of this year’s Sommelier Wine Awards.
Grown on a single estate that was planted in 2010, this rosé is s single varietal Pinot Noir, full malolactic ferment with 30% fermented in French oak and 9.6g/litre dosage.
The wine has a beautiful pale pink colour and noticeably persistent bubbles. The nose opens up with a very clean and fresh air; citrus and strawberry with a subtle hint of floral and slight pastry notes.
The palate is superbly balanced; initially crisp, clean, fresh citrus flavours with a big burst of strawberry and red berry flavours. A refined mousse ushers in a very smooth mid-taste, subtlety eased in by the partial oak ferment whilst retaining focus on the red fruit flavours. The finish is lengthy and
A delightful first Rosé release for this up and coming producer from Marlow.
The Harrow & Hope Rosé will be released on 21st May and will retail for around £28.00 / bottle – available directly from the website www.harrowandhope.com
