Hentley Farm Rosé 2016

Happy New Year - i s'pose this blog doesn't write itself now...

Lurid pink in glass, like grannie's lipstick (un)gracefully applied before planting a smacker with her pruney lips. 

All about the red fruit (unsurprising given it's made from Grenache), of raspberry, a little cranberry and some creaminess. 

It's quite tart on entry, that cranberry tang making its presence felt. It's drying, a chalky pucker before flashes of bright acidity followed up by a little residual fruit sweetness. 88
