The nose is soft and gives a slightly sweet impression of ripe red apples. This sets one up for the surprise of one of the driest Rosés available.

The fresh acidity heralds a more serious food-style rose. There are hints of raspberry. This wine has a wonderful minerality encased in a superb mouth feel. This gives length and complexity.

Viniculture: The Lothian Mourvedre Rosé was handpicked on 10th April 2018. This Mourvedre (a late ripening cultivar) is planted specifically for Rosé and is best suited for in Elgin.

The block had been grown with a ballerina trellis, with its more open canopies which ripened the grapes. Grapes were picked in the early morning and fed into the press for whole bunch pressing. The degree of ripeness and the gentleness of the whole-bunch pressing, allowed all the juice to be used without fear of excessive colour pick up.

The wine was kept on its gross lees for about 4 months with stirring when needed. The wine was racked, and bottled with the same dryness at which it finished the ferment.
