2021 Lailey Cabernet Franc Rosé
Every year we select the most appropriate blocks of our vineyard’s finest and most enticing varieties for the production of distinctive and stylish rosés that reflect both the vintage and our cherished terroir.
Grapes for this single-variety Cabernet Franc Rosé were harvested from our heritage Lailey vineyard from old vines, and juices extracted using the Saignée method. 100% of the blend is made from estate-grown Cabernet Franc grapes.
Barrel fermented and aged for 4 months in French oak barrels.
Single Vineyard. Vegan Friendly.
Drink cool. Fabulous with food, too!
"An intriguing nose that crosses aromatic borders, first exuding cooked peaches and grilled grapefruit, then notes of a flinty appeal. Also on the nose, a structural lift thanks to four months of barrel age. The palate is dry, with sharp acidity and lingering flavours of fresh raspberry and vanilla. Excellent length. 90 points"
