Blowhorn Rosé

This is a serious Rosé

100% Pinot Noir Rosé

£29.00

There’s no point in calling ourselves the heretics if we do the same as everyone else, is there? So, we took a punt and decided to barrel ferment all of this (we’re big fans of Les Clans) Pinot Noir, also from Missing Gate vineyard. No clear glass bottles here getting rapidly damaged by light; we are protecting this beauty in our signature black bottles; some people will hate that, but there are always ‘some people’. All old Burgundy barrels with a bit of lees stirring, this is a serious Rosé; there’ll be no floaty dresses prancing around a picnic here, no siree.

So, how does it taste? It has more depth to it than most Rosé wines and a better complexity. So can you drink it on its own? Hell yeah, but it’s also a winner for Sunday lunch or accompanying some Waygu beef on the BBQ. It turns out real men can drink Rosé after all. You’ll find us sharing a bottle of this whilst eating those fantastic (but bastard expensive) Torres crisps. Perfection.

 

 

But, you don’t have to take our word for it, here’s what others are saying:

Delicately floral and dangerously raw, infinitesimally layered and fragilely crystalline, unnervingly stern and fleetingly exotic, this is a kaleidoscopically fascinating wine, and the finish alone takes you into next week. I commend this wine to you. It is the most shocking and convincing debut launch of any English wine in my entire wine career’

Matthew Jukes, Vineyard Magazine May 2024

 

Absolutely bloody, effing, really good! All the rosé I’ve tried so far from England was absolute piss, until this’

Tom Gilbey, Instagram June 2024 (you know, the Marathon fella)

 

‘This is so, so good, I’d drink this over expensive Provence Rosé any day’ 

Tamlyn Currin on www.jancisrobinson.com 

 

‘Utterly beguiling pale pink rosé from Essex’

Fiona Beckett, The Guardian

 

‘A Rosé for Burgundy lovers’

Delay to delivery...

Delay to delivery – we’ve gone to a festival. You can still place orders as usual but there’ll be a slight delay in shipping this week as we’re in Gilles Peterson’s festival in France. The line up is amazing. Normal service will resume on Tues 9th July.
