Well, perhaps not a war exactly. Maybe, just a gentle tussle between tipples.
Our point is, the sunshine is back – at last – and its time to think pink. We have not just one but two Rosés to tickle your fancy. So make the most of the warmth of the Summer sipping chilled fizz so delicious it will make you blush.
AMBRIEL HUZZAH ROSÉ MV
First the Huzzah Rosé: A gorgeous zingy pink to make you perky. Its nose of full-bloom rose comes from the 15% Pinot Meunier, but the strawberries and raspberries on the palate are pure Pinot Noir. This is a glorious rosé: serious winemaking but fun to drink. Sip when you’re feeling frolicksome and free.
If you want to know more about it see:
AMBRIEL ROSÉ 2018
This is the big sister, made from a single clone of Pinot Noir (the 777, since you ask) with a 2% twinkle of Pinot Meunier for extra sparkle. This vintage rosé from 2018 is a jewel. The maceration on the skins, and its 48 months on the bottle lees gives it some extra gravitas. Perfect for grown-up ,thoughtful musings while watching the sun set (or indeed, rise.)
THE AGONY OF DECISION
Too hard to choose between the two? So don’t.
Taste them side by side and see which one you prefer. Order a mixed case (3 bottles of each?) Either way, you’ll be tippled pink.
