Rosé Vermouth 75cl
Wine: Knightor Sparkling Base, Rondo, Acolon
Tasting notes: Knightor base wine is the backbone of our rosé vermouth, providing ample citrus fruit characters plus all the crispness and elegance you would expect.
A fruity, easy drinking vermouth. Aromas of citrus, violets and red fruits with a gentle herbal backdrop. The palate is as exciting as it is easy, with fruity flavours abounding followed by lingering sweet spice and bitterness.
Aromatic and pleasantly bitter.
Our favourite cocktail: 50ml Knightor rosé vermouth & 125ml tonic water. Serve over ice with a sprig of rosemary.
Winemaker notes: A blend of 21 herbs and spices, many picked in and around Knightor, are used in our rosé vermouth. Many classic herbs were used such as Wormwood [Artemisia absinthium], Bay [Laurus nobilis] and Fennel [Foeniculum vulgare], plus some more unusual, herein lies the key to the elegance, complexity and a little bitterness. The herbs were first infused in a fruity Eau de vie distilled from our own grape skins. After a short steeping period, the herb infusion was blended with one of our fruity rose sparkling base wines allowed to mature and integrate for a short period before bottling.
