2016 FAIRBANK ANCESTRALE

The 2016 Ancestrale Rose is a classic rose  from Sutton Grange made in the “methode ancestrale” or “petillant naturel” style. This means the wine finishes the end of the primary fermentation in bottle, capturing the essence of the single vintage and vineyard. It is aged on lees over winter and was lightly disgorged to remove heavy tartrates (although light lees remain). There were no additions made to this wine throughout its life, including zero SO2 or dosage at the disgorging. This wine is extremely versatile and enjoyed as an aperitif or at its best with antipasto or light seafood dishes. 

Tasting Note:

Very pale in colour, with a slight hue of peach. Aromas of stone fruits, peach and florals - very expressive with some vanillin and nutty characters. The palate is dry and crunchy, with delicate red fruits, pear and pink lady apple peel. The palate finishes dry with mouth filling weight tightened by some mid palate tannin texture.
