Rosnay Freedom Preservative Free White 2013
- Certified Organic
- Vegan Suitable
- No Added Preservative (Preservative Free)
- Wild (Natural) Yeast Fermentation
ON CLEARANCE - Still drinking ok, but like most preservative free wines, it is aging quickly and has developed a tropical tinned pineapple character, with a slight bitterness on the finish - Will go well with food rather than on its own. Drink by Christmas 2014
The Freedom White has restrained fruit character of white peaches, with a slight creaminess from 100% malolactic fermentation. Its nice acidity is balanced with a touch of residual sweetness.
Serve well chilled.
The 2013 Freedom White is made from 60% Chardonnay and 40% Semillon, in the same philosophy as the Rosnay “Blanc”: a balance of the chardonnay fruit weight and the Semillon acidity and minerality. As for the red, the white is co-fermented in steel tank, with moderate tannin extraction, some oak contact, malolactic fermentation, complete oxygen exclusion, and careful filtration before bottling under screw cap. Enjoy now.

The wine is not made for ageing. Only a limited amount of this wine is produced each year to ensure that the wine is sold within 12 months of bottling. The original label painting by Florence Statham is of the Ibis who are wonderful and frequent visitors to Rosnay.
