Product Description

Screwcap. Rosalind, Shakespeare's heroine in As You Like It, famously asked, "Can one desire too much of a good thing?" We asked ourselves the very same thing when confronted with the option of importing a third rosé from the hand of Guffens. As it turned out Guffens had already pre-empted our answer by naming the wine Pourquoi pas? (Why not?) How could we refuse? Here Guffens set out to craft something very altogether more serious, full bodied, complex and food friendly. The fruit, 100 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon (why not?), comes from a specific parcels in the property that he picks riper. The must is fermented in stainless steel before being transferred to large wooden casks where it has matured on its nourishing lees before bottling. The result is a striking, left field, complex rosé that blew our mind. Not only a massive step up in power and fruit density - it really fills the mouth with creamy texture and chewy structure - but so complex and engaging. It's Guffens' thinking person's rosé.
