Branwen 2018

£14.00Price

Branwen is a brand new release for Astley Vineyard. It is also the first wine that has been entirely made and bottled on-site in our very own winery.

 

Named after the Celtic goddess of love and beauty, Branwen is a 40-40 blend of blush late harvest Siegerrebe, and Madeleine Angevine. It also contains a small amount of Pinot Noir, and dry Siegerrebe.

 

Fun and fruity, this rosé has aromas of rosehip and apricot, with an intense ripe fruit palate, and a dry finish. Drink as a chilled aperitif, or paired with intense Mediterranean dishes.

Our winemaking ethos

As of 2018, all of our wines are made right here on site by our family (with the help of consultant Simon Day). The grapes travel approximately 250m from the vineyard to the winery.

 

Our winemaking ethos is to produces characterful wines that represent the grape variety, the vintage, and our boutique size. We aim to make as few interventions as possible - never deacidifying, fining, and only filtering when needed. We also aim to reduce our sulphur usage as much as possible (0.5 molecular sulphur in most cases).
