Winefolio top 10 Rose Tasting

3rd place Askerne ‘Serieux’ Rosé 2021

One of a pair of new wines from Askerne – both had their admirers, and both made our Top 10. Big bouquet of summer fruits – red berries, melon, white peach and apricot, with a likeable bubblegum note on the nose as well. Bright and youthful – a taut, dry style, but with “volume and texture right through the middle” according to our notes. Vibrant, refreshing and with lots going on. Serious, indeed.


8th place Askerne ‘Fleurty’ Rosé 2021

The other one of the pair – this one sweeter and with a light spritz on the tongue. A fascinating bouquet – perfumed with cranberry, red liquorice, ginger, apple, almond and a rose petal floral. The character continues further in, with fennel and chamomile herbals, spices popping up through the strawberry and watermelon flavours that dance over the palate. Soft acidity and a broad, creamy texture. Vibrant, pretty and juicy.
