Llaethliw Rosé, 2018
– Bright watermelon flesh in colour, this wine offers a pleasant floral nose with hints of juicy stone fruits and crisp red apple. Once in the mouth you will experience bags of juicy citrus acidity with some notes of raspberry and sour cherry. Certainly one for the warmer summer months, to be enjoyed in the sunshine, with friends (from a distance) or as an aperitif.
Llaethliw White, 2018
– A clear pale yellow colour, this wine looks like summer in a glass. On the nose it has fresh green apple aromas coupled with scents of gooseberry, stone fruits and meadow grass. This is followed up on the palate with refreshing flavours of crisp green apple and ripe nectarine. The wine has a nice mineral aspect that is pursued by a generous citrus acidity. It is perfect on its own over a long lunch although it would also sit well with seafood and light chicken dishes.
