Delicate pink in appearance, with soft summer berries and floral notes on the nose. The palate shows bright red fruits, driven by ripe strawberries, fresh cherries and redcurrants, with a crisp freshness and creamy, rounded texture on the finish


Perfect to start, perfect as an accompaniment and perfect to finish, Gusbourne Rosé keeps the very best company with a dedicated list of perennial fans from Flemings Mayfair to the Cherwell Boathouse in Oxford.
