Details

"It’s a blend of all the different red grape varieties, though you could say it is dominated by merlot. The 2014 was the first version. Pet nats are increasingly a thing; good to get a handle on them as a style. Hazy pink. Rose petal, Turkish delight, faint beetroot and a swish of sour cherry. Sweet fruited to taste, light in fizz but vigorous enough to give good tickle in the palate. Delicious is a clear message. Really lovely drinking here with good grapiness, freshness and sense of fun."

"This sparkling rosé is from the 2017 harvest and made of Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Some of the fruit was picked on a full moon and the wine is a ‘rosé’ hence the name Rose Moon fitting our biodynamic philosophy. It is a “petillant naturel” based on the methode ancestrale. The wine is bottled before the first fermentation is finished. This approach gives a vibrant, fun and utterly drinkable sparkling wine."
