Slightly off-dry on the palate, balanced by nice, crisp acidity. The aromas and flavours are of tart red berry fruits like raspberry, red currant, and red cherry giving, a juicy freshness to the finish.
This finely structured, taut rosé is made with the gently pressed juice off pinot noir grapes, aged in stainless to preserve fruity freshness and crisp, crunchy acidity. Green raspberry, thorns and rhubarb lead to a rush of raspberry, red currant, dried herbs and delicate wild strawberry. Precise and elegant, befitting lox and hen eggs or savoury wild boar charcuterie.
from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, again harkens back to old Europe with its richer nose leading to being bone dry on the palate. There’s rhubarb and an almost creamy richness that is subtle on the nose (thank the Pinot Noir grape for this). Lovely, long finish will put a smile on your face. The Le Vieux Pin team approaches rosé with the ideology that the grapes need to be cultivated for the wine you are going to make, so crop levels are kept lower and the grapes are picked earlier than if the Pinot Noir grapes were meant for a red wine. It’s an old school, old world approach that allows for the fruit to shine and to maintain vibrant acidity.
This delicious wine is made entirely with Pinot Noir pressed for rosé; it is not a saignée rosé. The wine begins with appealing strawberry aromas leading to flavours of rhubarb and pink grapefruit. The wine has a refreshing dry, tangy finish.
