A seductive, ripe and rich off-dry rosé. Deliciously balanced, bursting with flavour. Strawberries, raspberries and melon aromas lead to a lively fruity mouth filling palate of berries and earthy cherries. We suggest pairing with a crab salad, creamy goat’s cheese, or a herby pasta dish.

A fresh dry wine, elegant and very easy drinking with a long and fine finish. Aromas of lemon peel, honeysuckle and tropical coconut lead to a palate of zesty citrus blossom, peach and buttery vanilla notes.
Great to drink on its own or paired with pan seared bass, grilled chicken or a puy lentil salad.

Round and fruity with hints of spice this light bodied red has cherry, raspberry and earthy vanilla notes to the aroma and palate, with a subtle soft oak finish. We suggest pairing with a crispy roast duck, slow roasted lamb or a rich mushroom dish.
