You little beauty! Or should we say L’Île de Beauté. That’s what winemaker/owner Dave Clouston used to call this Rosé, which has been Cuisine magazine’s No.1 Rosé three times in the last four years. Top effort!
Well he’s dropped the fancy French lingo but kept the fancy French style – pale salmon in colour and dry, crisp style to taste. All made from some of his good old Marlborough Pinot Noir grapes. He’s put it all in a sexy as hell new bottle too.
L’Île de Beauté (Island of Beauty) is the nickname for Corsica, the island off the south-east coast of mainland France. Dave spent a bit of time over that way and picked up a few handy tricks on how to make Rosé the French way.
It’s got antipasto and summer lunches written all over it. Sure to be an absolute hit, a class act for the money.
