Drinking Window: 2017 - 2018
The grapes for this wine are sorted twice before destemming, with 5% of the wine fermented in barrel for extra complexity. Delicate cherry and strawberry fragrances rise from the glass. In the mouth, savoury red fruit and peppery spice are accompanied by a pronounced, prickly acidity. The wine finishes with red fruit and more spice. This is quite a serious expression, best with food.

The fate of this celebrity-owned vineyard which currently belongs to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may be uncertain, but there’s no doubt about the quality of this fresh, elegant, wild strawberry scented rosé. Drink with: lobster, sea bass.
