Rose Introduction

Important information if you are sensitive to Sulphites

Most Rose wines contain comparatively high levels of sulphites. For this reason we don't list many Rose wines as it's difficult to find ones with low sulphite content. However we now have two from Domaine Viret which are completely natural with just a tiny amount of added sulphite at bottling, which are perfectly safe for sulphite intolerant people, as well as delicious of course.

We also have a sulphite free Rose from Frey Winery in California, which again is completely natural with no chemicals whatsoever.

Plus we offer several other Roses which are comparatively very low in sulphites such as the delicious Julicher Pinot Noir from New Zealand and the Argiolas Sera Lori from Sardinia.

 
 

La Selva Organic Rosato IGT 2014 75cl

Organically certified by ICEA, Naturland and NOP

A lovely fruity rose with a dry finish. Made from a blend of the local Ciliegiolo and Sangiovese grapes. Ciliegiolo derives it's name from the Italian for cherry (Cillieglia) so it's no surprise this grape gives the wine strong cherry flavours. It is lovely and very natural tasting. Delicious, healthy and good for you!

Grangehurst Cape Blend Rose 2015

John Platter 4 Stars

Sorry - still not a good photo! Jeremy photographed this himself, he hasn't yet got round to having a professional shot taken! The wine is delicious though!

A fantastic crisp, refreshing exciting blend from Jeremy Walker at Grangehurst. A cross between a light red and a Rose to be drunk chilled, receiving great acclaim in South Africa. A dry rosé blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, Merlot, Chenin Blanc and Shiraz!

Jeremy's reds are made in a unique style for South Africa - extensive barrel ageing prior to blending which creates beautifully integrated, complete wines. Well he's done the same with this Rose - it's full in the mouth with good body (like a red!) yet with all the delicious cherry flavours of a Rose, and even a slight citrus lift from the small amount of Chenin in there giving a pleasant crisp finish. It's like having a Red, White and Rose wine all in one. I love big reds but in warmer weather like to switch to either crisp White or a Rose wine - well this wine bridges that gap perfectly. The ideal Rose wine for a Red wine lover! Just perfect in the warmer weather.

Jeremy hand crafts all his wines - I've seen the set up and watched the bottling by hand, all done by his trusted right hand woman Etsebethe and one assistant. He uses absolutely minimal additives and achieves some of the lowest free sulphur ratings we've ever seen outside of completely sulphite free wines. This Rose has just been tested (October 2013) and only contains a remarkable 16 ppm free sulphite, and only 61 ppm total sulphite making it safe for sulphite intolerant people and a really healthy lifestyle option for anybody looking to cut out the additives in life!

Argiolas Serra Lori Rosato Isola dei Nuraghi IGT 2013 75cl

Robert Parker - 89 Points for the 2011

13.5% abv. This is a lovely Rose. A nose of strawberries, so it comes as no suprise to get strong strawberry flavours on the palate. Plenty of fruit with a full mouthfeel and creamy texture. The wine has a crisp, dry finish leaving you wanting more. Ideal as an aperitif, for sipping in the garden or can partner certain foods such as chicken or white meats. Reminiscent of unsugared stawberries and cream!
