"Exquisitely elegant and delicately expressed with white flesh nectarine, strawberry, lemon peel and white floral aromas, it's fine and linear in the mouth delivering bright fruit flavours with refreshing acidity, finishing lingering and fabulously charming. At its best now to 2024.

"The very smartly packed 2022 vintage is a "Provence-style dry rose'. Pale pink, it is medium bodied, with fresh, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, gentle acidity and a smooth dry finish. Finely balanced, it offers attractive, easy drinking for the summer for 2023.

“A delicate salmon & onion skin hued appearance, very bright and polished with aromas of peach tea and saffron, apricot stone and white blossoms. Youthful, fresh and enticing. On the palate - just dry with a silky texture contrasted by acidity and a core of fresh fruit flavours that mirror the bouquet. There’s a light citrus edge to the fruit adding an additional cool climate charm . A light mineral tone adds complexity while super fine fruit tannins for mouthfeel begin to complete the wine on the palate. Balanced and well made with a fruit, even finish. Best drinking from 2021 through end of summer 2023.”

”It's fabulously lifted on the nose showing watermelon, apricot, rockmelon and rich floral aromas, leading to a gorgeously flavoursome palate that's succulent and flowing. Refreshing and delectably appealing. At its best: now to 2023.”

"Charming and delightfully expressed, the inviting bouquet shows watermelon, apricot, floral and lemon peel aromas, leading to a vibrant palate that is juicy and lingering. It's pristine and elegant with youthful fruit intensity, finishing long and fabulously dry"

“Very pale pink, the 2021 vintage is a Provençe style dry Rosé, made from Pinot Noir, it is full bodied with fresh, generous, peachy (rather than berryish) flavours, hints of strawberry and spices. Lots of drink-young appeal”
