WINE REVIEW

Described as typifying the Rathfinny house-style, this inaugural pink fizz is a Pinot Noir-dominant (50%) blend with Chardonnay (40%) and Pinot Meunier (10%).

The Rosé Brut 2015 is a spectacularly elegant first release, from its delicate peachy tones and fine bubbles to the fresh aromas of wild strawberry, crisp citrus and blossom.

The wine has a brilliantly refined palate, beginning with pure, delicate raspberry and cranberry flavours. There is a slightly fuller honeysuckle note on the mid-taste, with hints of fuller stone fruit flavours.

There’s a lingering beauty here, with citrus and a hint of smoky minerality on the finish. The low dosage (2.5g/l) in this wine is a textbook example of winemaker restraint resulting in a wine of finesse and precision.
