Knightor base wine is the backbone of our rosé vermouth, providing ample citrus fruit characters plus all the crispness and elegance you would expect. A fruity, easy drinking English vermouth. Aromas of orange, thyme, citrus, violets and red fruits with a gentle herbal backdrop. The palate is as exciting as it is easy, with fruity flavours abounding followed by lingering sweet spice and bitterness. Aromatic and pleasantly bitter.
A blend of 21 herbs and spices, many picked in and around Knightor, are used in our rosé vermouth. Many classic herbs were used such as Wormwood [Artemisia absinthium], Bay [Laurus nobilis] and Fennel [Foeniculum vulgare], plus some more unusual, herein lies the key to the elegance, complexity and a little bitterness. The herbs were first infused in a fruity Eau de Vie distilled from our own grape skins. After a short steeping period, the herb infusion was blended with one of our fruity rosé sparkling base wines allowed to mature and integrate for a short period before bottling.
