The powerful 2021 vintage (5*) was made entirely from Cabernet Franc, aged for four months on its yeast lees before bottling. Deep pink, it is a distinctive, unusually mouthfilling style of Rosé, sweet-fruited, with deep, ripe peach, strawberry and spice flavours, a hint of apricot, balanced acidity and a smooth, dry (2.5 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish.
