Blackbook Winery 'I'd Rather be a Rebel' Rosé

Blackbook's 'I'd Rather be a Rebel' Rosé is made from 100% Pinot Noir sourced from the single vineyard ‘Crouch Valley Vineyard’, which is situated on the coastal peninsula of the Crouch Valley in Essex, between the Crouch and Blackwater Rivers. The grapes were all hand-picked into small crates and then transported the short distance to the winery in Battersea, London. At the winery the wine was vinified following the philosophy of minimal intervention. The grapes were cold soaked, then whole bunch pressed directly into 5 to 10 year old Burgundy barrels, without settling. The wine underwent fermentation with indigenous yeast, followed by malolactic conversion with natural yeast which resulted in a softer mouthfeel. 25% was aged in stainless steel tanks, retaining the purity of fruit, where it received frequent lees stirring. The remaining 75% was aged for six months on its lees in seasoned Burgundy barrels. The total maturation time was eight months. The Blackbook 'I'd Rather be a Rebel' Rosé is an expressive and textured dry wine, with elements of strawberries and cream, ripe red cherry and freshly crushed raspberry coming together on the beautifully balanced palate.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
