The name Fitzrovia comes from the area of London between Bloomsbury and Camden, frequented by Sir Christopher Merret, the first person to document the traditional method in 1665. This is a rosé for red wine lovers – hearty and concentrated in the depths of the red fruit. The grapes are whole-bunch pressed with gentle force to extract the juice softly with just the slightest of skin tannins. A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier is created just before malolactic fermentation to integrate the varieties and highlight the beautiful strawberry fruit characteristics of the wine. Even as this wine is predominantly Chardonnay with a dosage of 10.5 g/L, the red fruits come through beautifully as a great match to steak tartare and a foil to a classic English berries n' cream.
92 Points, Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast - “Something savory and soy-like creeps into the red hedgerow fruit on the nose of this pale-pink sparkler. The palate comes in with mouth-filling strawberry fruit and that same wonderful savoriness. There is pepper and ample lemon freshness. The finish resonates and spells pleasure, spice and refreshment.”
