Folc English Rosé £15.99
Why we love it
Could this possibly be the most elegant of English still rosés available today? Pinot Noir dominant and blended with a multiple of other grape varieties, the making of this unique wine is an extraordinary feat resulting in an exemplary and award-winning still rosé.
We tasted the 2020 vintage, which was all pink orange on the eye and honeysuckle and jasmine on the nose. A sip rolls into vibrant strawberries, grapefruit and elderflower notes on the palate, with a touch of tangerine orange jelly lingering on the finish. A dry, crisp, fresh rosé – yes, it’s complex however it’s as light as a summer breeze at 11% ABV.
Naturally vegan, gluten-free and accredited with WineGB’s sustainability scheme, this is a modern wine for a modern palate. The fact that it has also collected more gongs than any other still English rosé is yet another reason to discover why this local rosé is here to stay.
If the 2020 vintage is sold out, Folc’s 2021 rosé should be available (we can’t wait to try it).
Rosés tend to go with similar, light, fresh flavours. Match this rosé with a garden salad, light pasta or grilled salmon.
And when empty, we love the fact that Folc’s elegantly designed bottle can be upcycled, taking pride of place as a water bottle at your next dinner party. Cheers to that!
