STEPHANIE THE GNOME 2019 Rose
Our mate, Stephanie the Gnome, is not too fussed about his funny name! A jolly little fellow, after a few sips he sees life through rosé coloured glasses. Stephanie is also comforted by the fact he is named after Savigny-lés-Beaune in Burgundy, a region famous for Pinot Noir, which was the main grape variety in the initial release of this wine.
Dazzling bright pink in appearance with an equally spirited nose composed from all manner of perfumes. Strawberry, cherry, mixed orange and mandarin peel, herb, seaspray and bath salts. The palate is fresh, crisp and dry. A fruity mid palate gives way to an almost salty minerality, which, paired with mouth quenching acidity, leaves a lingering impression on the palate long after the wine has departed. Easily enjoyed without accompaniment, slightly chilled on a warm summer's evening, but equally suited to being paired with all sorts of Mediterranean, delicate or spicy foods.
