Wiston Rosé NV captures the essence of summer with fragrant notes of rhubarb, raspberry, strawberry, redcurrant, wild roses, lemon zest and a touch of sherbet on the finish. Underlying all of this is a backbone of crushed oyster shells, which reflects the pure chalk terroir where the vines are grown. It is superbly elegant with tiny, persistent bubbles and a refreshing acidity that makes one go back for more.
