Another wine from a little box of goodies sent by Chapel Down; actually quite a big box with beers and several wines included. This has quite a spritz to it - all in the name of freshness - so much though that it is just a step away from fizz. Now I wonder what that would be like?

Wine Tasting Note: Chapel Down English Rose, 2004, England.
£6.99 from English Wines Group.
With a name like English Rose this could only by a rosé; and what a colour - a delicate hue of early summer roses maybe. The aroma is light, but the palate with its spritzy feel is delectably full. Flavours of redcurrants dominate followed by creamy strawberries and a hint of rosehips. Dry on the finish with a suggestion of tannin from its red grape origins. A little expensive perhaps but it's unique and home grown so what is not to like? Serve as an aperitif to take us from Spring through to the simpering heat of late summer; or so we hope. The grapes are Dornfelder and Seyval Blanc. Alcohol 11%.
Scribblings Rating - 86/100
