'2019 VAGABOND WINERY English Rose 75cl (Essex, UK)
Style - Rose
Grapes - 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting - Pale and delicate it may be but we're not intent on making a rose that's meek and mute. Half the wine spent time with it's post-fermentation yeasts in an old barrel from Burgundy. The other 50% was aged in neutral steel tanks. The combination has a rewarding texture and roundness. It's the ideal balance between presence and discretion. So as well as being easy to enjoy its also a rewarding experience.
FYI: Our third vintage made by Gavin in our Battersea based winery. And - isn't this what they all say? - it's our best one yet. Amazingly 2019s vintage rewarded the patient with a generous crop of high quality grapes.
