This is a fruit forward rosé with fresh cherry and raspberries. The rich palate has a silken texture with fresh acidity and wonderful length.

Beautifully fresh and fragrant, the bouquet shows rock-melon, raspberry, citrus and floral characters, leading to a juicy palate that is zesty and flavoursome with excellent fruit intensity and vibrancy. The wine is immediate and friendly, and offers terrific drinking.
