    Vanessa Vineyard Rose 2016

    91 points – “Dry, powerful, lively. Made from Syrah with a generous splash (32%) of Merlot, this inaugural release rose from Vanessa Vineyard is comprised of only 90 cases, which was sold in their new tasting room on their estate in Cawston. It is a blessedly bone-dry version ruby-cranberry in colour with aromas of sunwarmed strawberries, tangy cranberries and kumquats, wild herbs tealeaf and savoury spices. Impressive focus and structure; it is simultaneously lively and powerful. An excellent first vintage, for a red-only (so far) producer.”
