Rosé - Glastonbury Vineyard - Six Brothers - Baltonsborough - Somerset
Made by the ex-BBC political journalist Max Cotton, this is a fantastic local rosé, composed of a field blend of two white grapes, Orion and the pink-tinged Souvignier Gris and the red grape Regent. All are early ripening varieties which cope well in our Northerly climate. No sprays or pesticides are used in the vineyard and true to it's name and hippy Glasto ethos, Max works to organic practises in close harmony with nature. His cow is called Bella.
It is a pale copper pink colour, delightfully crunchy in red fruit flavours, like cranberry and rhubarb with a trademark English hedgerow, elderflower note combined with a savoury edge. Totally delicious and will certainly give those Provencal winemakers a run for their money!
