Description

Our 2016 Picnic Cabernet Franc Rose emulates a dry, Loire Valley style Rose D'Anjou. The grapes were picked at night to reduce colour and are chilled in the press for 8 hours to preserve delicate varietal characters. We gently and slowly press the grapes, giving low extraction and intensity of fruit.

We believe Cabernet Franc to be perfect for Rose due to its light aromatic profile and gorgeous bright salmon colour. Aromas of cherry, strawberry and musk lead on to a fresh and lively palate with an abundance of red cherries and strawberries. This wine is savoury in style, with crisp, crunchy finish. Its dryness makes for a top aperitif style for Spring and Summer. Perfect for a Picnic!

Made from the wonderful Cabernet Franc. Perfect for picnics.
Very light in colour and flavour. Redcurrant and sweet grassy perfume. Fresh, straightforward and easy-going. Nice chilled. Good drinking.
