Great British Rose Week

The lovely Archie @wineawaytheday asked us to curate a case of rose because she is running social media campaign for Great British Rose Week. Great British Rose has that wonderful balance of gluggability and outstanding quality. We jumped at the chance to get involved.

For a wine that is the epitome of summer in a glass, it has to be Great British rose. Just add sunshine and blue skies and you have the recipe for a perfect British summers afternoon. Here are some of our favourites for Great British Rose Week…

Our top picks for Great British Rose Week

LYME BAY: Pinot Noir Rose 

Ideal conditions after a summer 2018 heatwave produced a near perfect growing season for the Pinot Noir grapes. A prolonged spell of hot weather followed by very little rain enabled grapes to fully ripen on the vine, which showed in both excellent quality & high yields. The nose gives complex and intense aromas of cherries rosehip, strawberries and cream. The palate offers good length and mouth-feel, with a refreshing acidity and is driven by redcurrant, cranberry, rhubarb and strawberry flavours.
