Rock Angel is partially barrel fermented in large oak barrels and made from Grenache, Cinsault and Rolle (Vermentino). This rosé bears a more complex and structured taste profile than Whispering Angel bringing it into a more premium realm giving rosé lovers a bigger and richer wine that is fabulous as an aperitif or paired with a broad range of fine cuisine. If you like the minerality of a Sancerre, you will love this wine.

” Unaffected freshness, dense and long. Well-crafted and elegant. ”
The Wine Spectator
” 2019 Rock Angel has found its roots. It possesses more than a little gravitas while still drinking well from the off… the finest vintage to date. ” 18/20
” Rounded and rich with flavors that mingle comfortably together. Ripe aftertaste. ” 90/100
Roger Voss (Wine Enthusiast)
” It might be young but there’s a power to this wine. It’s crisp and clean on the nose, and the fruit waits until its needed. ”
Tony Harries (Winefullness)
” A rosé with substance. Medium to full body and a creamy texture. Flavorful and beautiful. ” 93/100
” A little more soft rock than punk thanks to a little time in the barriques giving a slightly more rounded mouthful ”
