February is the month of love and Ken Forrester has the perfect pink wines, the colour of love, to elevate your celebration.
The Petit Rosé is elegant, inexpensive, and driven by soft ripeness and pure expression of the nature of the fruit. It overwhelms the nose with aromas of freshly picked strawberries, rose petals and cherry flavours. It follows through on the palate with delicious ripe raspberries and a delicate finish made for light-hearted enjoyment. The Petit Rosé is ideal to keep free-flowing on your Valentine’s summer evening while effortlessly partnering with meals from a fresh strawberry and fillet salad to rich chicken dishes.
The Silver Rose is 100% Grenache, from a single vineyard, resulting in an elegant and delightfully fruit-focused wine, with structure, body and a long finish on the palate. The soft pink wine has an abundance of red fruit flavours, notably strawberries and pomegranate. This wine is made from free-run juice, with no extraction of tannins, offering a pure expression of the quality of terroir and fruit. Enjoy Silver Rose with a charcuterie board with rich cured meats and cheeses or Mediterranean seafood dishes.
Stained Glass is an exciting bubbly wine made using the méthode ancestrale or ancestral method. The Grenache grapes are wild fermented and bottled early while fermenting, trapping the gases in this special wine. This is an entirely natural process with the possibility of fine sediment, which is an indication of limited interference and inherent quality. The result is a fine sparkle, with a wild strawberry nose, and a slightly sour note. This follows through to the palate which lifts the wine along with the fine mousse and rich mouthfeel due to the 18 months extended lees ageing. Stained Glass is ideal as an intriguing aperitif or partnered with Italian tomato dishes like a margarita pizza with quality mozzarella or Italian vodka pasta with sweet prawns.
