Silent Pool Rosé
Albury Organic Vineyard, headed up by Nick Wenman is situated on the southern slopes of the North Downs near Guildford in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Biodynamic techniques are used to enhance the quality of fruit, and we're delighted to be able to offer this vintage of rosé which is only produced in tiny quantity (the first vintage was snapped up by the Queen to have on the Royal Barge for the Jubilee Celebrations!). 'Silent Pool' is a lake of crystal clear water adjacent to the vineyard. according to local legend a beautiful young maiden drowned here, escaping the clutches of King John, and now haunts the Silent Pool!
Top 15 Rosés - The Independent, 'There’s nothing to blush about here. This award-winning English rosé can hold its head up high among its foreign rivals and was good enough to have been chosen for the royal barge during the Queen’s jubilee celebrations. From the Albury organic vineyard near Guildford in Surrey, it’s a crisp blend of Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir with an abundance of ripe summer fruit flavours and an elegant, dry finish. A rosé to savour.' June 2016 (2015 vintage)
