Mal.bek Malbec Rosé, IGP Pays d’Oc 2019£10.95
Grapes were sourced from growers who already provide us with Malbec for red wines.

Gentle handling in the winery and vinification in stainless steel gave us a delicate colour and fresh, fruity flavours.
Pretty, pink and medium bodied. A balance of delicate aromas, juicy raspberry and succulent strawberry flavours.

Rimauresq ‘R’ Cru Classé Rosé, Côtes de Provence 2019£22.95
Nine noble grape varieties are found at Rimauresq: Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan for the reds, Rolle (Vermentino) and Ugni Blanc for the whites and Cinsault, Mourvedre and Tibouren for the rosés. Only the best fruit from the vineyards is kept to craft the wines and selected old vine fruit is used for the “R” rosé. This dedicated approach, combined with a modern gravity fed winery, allows Pierre Duffort and his team to focus on producing the very best Provence has to offer. In addition to Grenache Noir, Cinsault and Mourvedre, Rolle (4%) and Ugni Blanc (2%) provide perfumed complexity to the blend. The wine is stored in its lees with regular batonnage over the winter after the harvest. The result is a gorgeously aromatic and light wine with good acidity that can be cellared for up to three years.
Delicate coral pink in colour yet with real concentration and weight due to the 70 year old vines used to produce the 'R' wines. This is one of the best and most classic of Provence rosés, vinous and weighty yet still very fine with opulent Grenache fruit and a touch of spice.
Very much a food rosé, serve with Lobster and other seafood, garlicky Provençale inspired dishes, grilled salmon, linguine primavera.
The Long Little Dog Rosé Vin de France 2018£8.99
Vines flourish in the Languedoc, a region where grapes delightfully ripen during the long sunny days. The result is fruity grapes of exceptional quality that our winemakers carefully select to produce the Little Long Dog wines, something we are proud to bark about! For this rosé, the gentle pressing of the grapes is done over a two hour period, resulting in a pale pink juice which doesn’t need further maceration for colour.
Pale pink with scents of fresh strawberries, raspberries and cream, the soft round palate fills out with a surprising weight and persistence as the flavours linger on the tongue. This is an easy-drinking wine with a slightly dry, tangy finish.
Take it easy, relax and enjoy a glass chilled with some shellfish and pretend you’re in the delightful vineyards of southern France. Maybe a dog’s life isn’t so bad after all.
Beatnik White Zinfandel Rosé 2018£7.95
Californian blush, perfect for those zoom parties. Original sketch inspired by the beatnik movement, founded in 50s California, where else?

La Ruchette Dorée, Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2018£10.95

The perfect accompaniment to light lunches, grilled fish, vegetable antipasti or as a delicious summer apéritif in the garden.

Intriguing pink tones with delicate salmon nuances, fine and
prolonged perlage in the glass. To the nose it presents elegant floral notes followed by sensations of small red fruits.

Interesting persistence and final sensation.
Excellent as an aperitif, perfect accompaniment to crudité,
marinated fish and shellfish, it also goes well with raw ham.
Suitable for vegans!
Henners Native Grace Rose 2018£13.95
The Native Grace Rosé is a blend of 75% Pinot Meunier and 25% Pinot Noir with grapes chosen from selected vineyard blocks. Grapes were hand-harvested and Pinot Meurnier grapes were loaded into the press and left to macerate overnight before being whole bunch pressed to obtain a beautiful, delicate, pink colour. The grapes were cool fermented in stainless steel, before undergoing malolactic fermentation.
Deliciously fruity Pinot Meunier provides a vibrant strawberry and cream backbone to the Native Grace Rose. Summer berry flavours take centre stage with juicy raspberry, cherry and redcurrant notes delivering a dry, zippy finish.
Served chilled on a warm summer’s day or perfect with a fruity dessert such as Eton Mess.

Five Geese Mixed Case£98.50

Sue’s son Jonathon has been working in viticulture for over 20 years and has managed his family’s vineyards for the past 15 years.
