In 2013, for the first time, Rosnay produced a Rose table wine without any sulfur dioxide to preserve it. It is made from 75% Shiraz and 25% Mourvedre, a late ripening Spanish red wine grape widely grown in the south of France. It is resistant to drought and disease, and makes a soft and rustic wine, ideal with earthy flavours of root vegetables, mushrooms, grilled meats, game and duck. The Shiraz give a rich, spicy palate and is traditionally a partner of Mourvedre.
The 2013 Freedom Rose has bright pink colour, with a touch of red brick, floral nose and light fruit character with nice acidity balanced with a touch of residual sweetness. Serve chilled. The original label painting by Florence Statham is of the Ibis who are wonderful and frequent visitors to Rosnay.
