Review and Tasting


Sampled on 17/01/2020

Appearance:

Clear, pale rust with a persistent mouse.

Aroma:

Fresh raspberries and tinned raspberries with apple and buttery biscuit pie base. Faint floral grassy scents.

Taste:

Red apple and dried raspberry balanced by lemon citrus acidity and cut grass. Good effervescence.

Aftertaste:

Medium to long dry finish with raspberry and cut grass.

Overall:

Very limited in its availability (just 500 bots), Oxney's 2016 rose is beautifully balanced with appealing rich raspberry and apple fruitiness with lemony acidity.
