In a line-up of rosés, this stood out for its style – though not a wine to my taste. Pale ruby – deeper colour than many in the line-up, and more like a pale red – with pronounced jammy blackcurrant, blackberry and slightly medicinal nose. Fruit-forward, though a touch of mineral smokiness. Full-bodied, with sweet, jammy blackberry fruit. Moderately crisp acidity.
