This is hitting quite a few sweet spots; developed enough, but still fresh. Full-textured, but not too extracted. Still, it is quite a decadent style with strawberry cheesecake and the forest-floor savour of some Pinot Noir development. A lovely, ethereal rosehip/autumn jelly character is here too, but it is still succulent and fresh with a delicate almond-sponge richness. Fully settled on the palate, with some creamy oak nicely woven in, it really is quite unctuous with a lasting frangipane-rich finish.

Reviews & Scores
Elegant red fruits on nose with deceptively powerful weight on the palate. Rich, toasty and concentrated with lots of character and complexity. Gold Medal and ‘Best Sparkling Rosé’ Trophy, Wine GB Awards 2021
