Freedom Of The Press A Brighter Fuchsia

An excellent example of pure English Rosé.

Freedom of the Press is a semi urban winery based in Oxfordshire. The creator Gavin Caver doesn't farm his own vines but rather selects grapes from across Essex. This Rosé is one of his stand out wines, it is fruity from the Pinot Noir, but also crisp from the Chardonnay. A short time in oak gives subtle hints of honey and nuts; it's not one to be missed.

Freedom of the Press

Freedom of the Press

Freedom of the Press is an urban winery in the Cotswolds, just 15 miles outside of Oxford. Owned and run by Gavin Carver, the winery makes small batches of beautiful still wines from exquisite English grapes, selecting techniques and vessels best suited to crafting each wine’s distinctive style.

Not owning his own vineyards, Gavin sources his fruit from Essex, a county that is acknowledged as having the best sites for growing grapes for still wines in the country. In a typical year Essex is drier and sunnier than anywhere else, meaning the grapes become riper. Furthermore the London clay is proving to be a perfect soil to develop powerful complex flavours in cool-climate still wines.

Although a very small winery, Freedom of the Press have a range of vessels for fermentation and maturation. Steel tanks, earthenware jars, a concrete egg and old French oak barrels give Gavin the flexibility to shape his wines into a desired style.
