Gusbourne Rosé 2016
At Gusbourne they embrace tradition but readily challenge convention, even to make what might seem like minor alterations to the finished wine. Attention to detail is often the difference between great and exceptional. The original Gusbourne Estate in Appledore, Kent dates back to 1410. The de Goosebourne family crest was made up of three geese and every bottle of wine crafted at Gusbourne carries a contemporary goose crest in honour of our heritage. This ‘Goosemark’ is a symbol of trust, representing our pursuit of uncompromising quality.
Delicate, pale and light pink in appearance, the nose brims with more intense aromas of soft summer berries, wild strawberry and developed fresh pastry notes. There is a floral character to this wine, which combines beautifully with the soft red fruits, cranberry and ripe cherries, on the palate. A vibrant citrus streak appears on the finish which is persistent, tightly driven and focussed.
Perfect to start, perfect as an accompaniment and perfect to finish, Gusbourne Rosé keeps the very best company with a dedicated list of perennial fans from Flemings Mayfair to the Cherwell Boathouse in Oxford. Enjoy the fruit forward nature of the wine on its own or paired with with fresh salads, light cheese and summer fruits.
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier
