About the Wine

This oxidative rosé is a blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Sylvaner and Muscat harvested with the Bannwarth family in Obermorschwihr, Alsace. A true field blend, all varieties were picked together, left to macerate for around four days, then moved to cuve to rest outside in the elements for one year at which point the wine was racked to old barrels for a further two years of ageing, with no topping up at any stage. The result is a fascinating wine that in both perfume and structure, sits somewhere between white and red, with complex notes of red berries, dry spices and rose framed by faint tannins and a long, lingering saltiness.

Please note this oxidative wine is bottled as 500ml.

About Anders Frederik Steen

Anders and his family have now settled in the beautiful village of Valvignères in the Ardèche, a beautiful spot amongst a wide, open valley. The many varieties grown here thrive on a perfect mix of clay and limestone and the vineyards are full of life, having been tended organically for decades. As well as his own vineyards, Anders also picks grapes with the Ousrics in Valvignères and further afield with the Bannwarth family in Obermorschwihr, Alsace. In his previous life Anders was both a chef and sommelier, working at the best restaurants in his native Denmark. First as a sommelier at Noma, later opening Manfreds and Relae. This experience informs his winemaking in that he does not seek to follow rules and doesn't feel the need to do the same thing every year. Instead, as he harvests he tastes the grapes and begins to imagine the kind of wine he might be able to make. This refreshingly logical, creative approach yields wines that are truly one of a kind.

The Brighter Cider of Life 2021

This cider was topped up with a little Viognier from last year’s harvest at Le Mazel (this juice will become Cuvée Mias, one of the Mazel wines Wayward imports directly). The result is a vinous and delicate take on the genre with fine bubbles and a gentle varietal perfume. A wonderful drink, so suited to spring. Find out more.
