Stephanie the Gnome 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 refreshing summer drop. This release is a gorgeous pale pink salmon colour, much lighter than previous vintages. On the nose a delightful boquet of strawberry, raspberry, red apple skin and cherries unfurls. Keep swirling, and we find hints of passionfruit, and more citrus aromas. The parcel of Sagrantino fruit within the blend adds a backbone of structure, lifting the vibrancy. The residual sugar is in perfect harmony with the acidity. A dry, crisp finish.
