STEPHANIE THE GNOME 2020 Organic 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.
A lovely aromatic rosé, light on its feet but full of comfortably recognisable character. Made in a traditional style with a not so traditional mix of varieties. Colour is bright pale pink. Both the nose and palate display desiccated strawberry, sugar dusted Turkish delight, red apple skin and a hint of pear. The mouthfeel is refined and silky, slightly juicy even. Fruit is the clear hero. Finely etched acid pierces through the fruit, tightening and freshening the finish of the wine. Best drunk as a young wine to take advantage of those pretty red fruits.
