La Rosita Brut, Sparkling Rosé (75cl)
An unusual, but gorgeous sparkling rose, mainly Garnacha from dry grown bush vines planted in Catalunya. Handcrafted by Scottish winemaker, Pamela Geddes, it is a must try.
Grapes: 85% Garnacha, 15% Syrah
Region: Catalunya, Spain
Tasting notes/pairing options: Initial nougat and toasted brioche notes are followed by wild strawberries and rosehip aromas; the palate is fruit driven and elegant with great length; fine and persistant bubbles. It works beautifully with oysters, salmon or roast beef and horseradish.
Sustainable farming, suitable for vegans and vegetarians
Pamela Geddes has an unlikely story. Originally from Aberdeen in Scotland and educated in microbiology, she first worked in the whisky industry. She then moved into the wine scene and mastered the craft of making sparkling reds. These days she produces some amazing wines under her label Lobban Wines. For all her sparkling wines, the winemaking process is entirely manual, using traditional method artisanal techniques; these are truly handcrafted wines.
