Sometimes, we feel rosé gets a hard rap, which may seem weird considering that during the summer months our stores require a liquid nitrogen sprinkler system in their cellars’ to simply get enough chilled rosé to satisfy the demands of the baying park going public. In fact, between the months of July and August in London, you are never more than 1.7m away from a bottle of rosé, who knew?

Despite this evident popularity, people still don’t tend to take rosé all that seriously. We’re as guilty of it as anyone; describing top quality rosés as ‘refreshing,’ ‘dangerously easy-drinking’ or ‘like an improvised explosive raspberry device,’ but rarely ‘complex.’

Not today, we’re going to show this Cote du Rhone rosé some proper respect; you see, with great focus on purity of fruit and extended lees aging in the winery, this wine is not only wonderfully refreshing, it is complex, mineral scented, intense and powerfully expressive of red berries and white flowers! This wine is dangerously easy-drinking, but it’s also so much more!
Rhonéa is a melting pot of local winegrowers all working together in the spectacular landscape of the Southern Rhône. Today Rhonéa is made up of 250 estates situated around the craggy and imposing Dentelles de Monmirail. All are united in their quest to produce quality grapes with minimal intervention to produce top drinking wines.

The Rhonéa team posit, “growing grapes sustainably is important but saving the planet is even more so! Rhonéa and their artisan winegrowers are fully responsible for their wines from the vine to the glass and committed to ethical and equitable practices."

The winegrowers and winemaker make the natural fruit expression their number one priority. When they pick the grapes, the air is filled intoxicating aromas. In the winery, the grapes are destemmed and lightly crushed. Everything is done to obtain clear, aromatic juice that reflects the terroir. The must is naturally decanted from its lees at a temperature of 12 degrees Celsius and then cold fermented. The wine is aged on its lees for three months to add complexity and further layers of flavour before being bottled in the Spring to preserve maximum freshness.
