The informative bit; Oaken Grove is a 2.5 hectare vineyard just outside of Henley, on the way to Marlow, having been tended to lovingly by Phil Rossi for the last 15 years. The Pinot, Bacchus and M.A were planted in around 2007/8 and the wines are made at Stanlake Park.

Tasting notes; Mind blowingly fresh and fruity nose with watermelon and pink grapefruit with an impressive, light and dry palate still with those fruits coming through.

Drinking hints and tips: Drink cold, now and marvel at just how good an English rosé can be! Drink on its own or with strawberries and cream or smoked salmon.
