Southcott Rosé 2010

20th February 2014

Southcott Rosé 2010

A light, dry, crisp wine with lots of small bubbles. Scent of fresh peaches on the nose with a very clean taste. It has a very pale pink colour.

This is an excellent wine to have as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to your starter. Its clean lines will compliment a rich dessert such as chocolate.


The grapes were picked on October 20th 2010 after a warm September and October allowed the grapes to mature well. The harvest consisted of 50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir with 5% Pinot Meunier. The red grapes were particularly ripe in this vintage with good alcohol content. This made a natural Rose wine and the young vintage was held in a stainless steel vat at a winery near Shepton Mallet for 6 months and then bottled for a year before it was taken to Stanlake Park Winery near Twyford to be disgorged and labelled.

It was first released for sale in March 2013. It has been given PDO status (Product of Designated Origin). This is a European Union Quality Standard and confirms that it is made from the three named grapes in an English Vineyard in Pewsey Wiltshire.
