Gusbourne 2016 Rose Vintage

Gusbourne 2016 Rose Vintage
Appledore, Kent
12% ABV


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. Enjoy the fruit-forward nature of the wine on its own or paired with fresh salads, light cheese, and summer fruits
