Winemaking-wise this is suitably simple, with a little skin contact before being made like a white wine – in tank, with a short ferment and early bottling.
There is an almost Pinot Noir like fragrance here, a red berry muskiness that is very appealing. The palate, too, marries red fruit generosity with raised acidity – it’s real acidity though, not not sharp and all natural.
Unequivocally a rosé, with light flavours and simple flavours, yet wonderfully refreshing and lively. Perhaps a fraction too dry, but utterly smashable.
