Rosé - La Minuette

Championing authenticity
La Minuette in its new bottle shows great freshness and subtle notes of grapefruit. This blended rosé comes from the limestone terroir of La Livinière. Its pale colour and floral bouquet represent the Minuette variety of rose planted in Kenya by Tim Ford in 1982, during his 25 years of rose production in Africa. A nod to both the past and the future, La Minuette exemplifies estate values, where wines are rooted in tradition and made in the spirit of today.
