2018 UMAMU ROSÉ

Light salmon pink hues, this wine is fresh and floral with hints of red berries. It's a lovely start to a conversation – crisp, delicate red fruits, elegantly sophisticated and lingering.

What varieties do you use in this wine?

We use 82 per cent cabernet franc and 18 per cent merlot. We wanted to produce the best rosé we could, and chose to make one in the style of a Chinon cabernet franc rosé of the Loire Valley in France, which are among the greatest rosé wines.

How should we enjoy this wine over the coming months?

Any way you like! It’s delicious on its own, and versatile as it pairs well with everything from delicately prepared savoury seafood to sweet roast duck. We believe this is because of the cabernet franc component.
