Renegade, 'Shilpa' Pinot Noir Rose 2021
- In stock, ready to ship
- Inventory on the way
Here we have a brand new wine from Renegade, a barrel-fermented Pinot Noir Rose from Essex, UK. Being barrel fermented has given this wine a lovely creaminess, light vanilla notes are balanced out by classic English acidity. Textural, light, and packed with flavour, vibrant sherbet, gooseberry, and red fruit vibes.
Renegade isn't a traditional producer as they don't have a vineyard and instead buy their grapes depending on quality from growers in the UK and as far and wide as Albania. This may seem mad to a lot of traditionalists however a great line/description on their about us page is "Just like a chef who can select in-season vegetables from the best growers, we can change suppliers and pick the best grapes depending on the weather, regional variances and other external factors" which when you think about it seems obvious right? Why have the restraints of having to use the same grapes year in year out even if you know the previous vintage was better? Anyway, we have long been fans of these guys not because of their ethos and culture or their incredibly original labeling but because their wines absolutely BANG!
