It brings instant pleasure and a smile, for the rose petal aromas are so lifting, so pure and delightful.
A wonderful expression of Andre's sensitive handling of fruit (and of biodynamic viticulture perhaps).
It recalls the Edwardian scented soaps of Floris, Jermyn Street, while the medium bodied palate is as clear as a mountain burn, so juicy, yet dry even at 35 grams of residual sugar - the biodynamics accentuating the minerality and acidity of the wine to balance out the natural grape sweetness, and rendering them incredibly drinkable.
