Normans Holbrooks Road Rosé 2017
Normans Holbrooks Road - Rosé 2017
Bright strawberry coloured Rosé with full well rounded palate featuring luscious fruit, which is provided by the fruit driven base with a wonderful underlying touch of spice and sweetness. Long and persistent with a lovely balance of sweetness and spiciness to finish moreish.
The bouquet is jam packed with strawberry and raspberry, reminiscent of strawberry and cream lollies. Long and persistent with a lovely balance of sweetness and spiciness to finish.
The crushed grapes are cold soaked for up to 24 hours allowing the red colour of the skins to turn the white juice to crimson. The skins are then lightly pressed and discarded while the juice ferments slowly until the desired level of natural residual sweetness is reached. The ferment is stopped with chilling and the finished wine is held cold in tanks, and then bottled to ensure freshness.
Drinking well now or in the short term whilst the flavours are at their most exuberant.
