not to put you on the spot, you didn't have much commentary on the still rosť and little on the sparkler - any overall impressions?

Also, I'm a little confused about the concept of early picking to maintain fruit and keep tannins in check. I kind of imagined ripeness aids in a fruit character and controlling skin contact for tannin and color?

Thanks -- Ross

@Ross Dan had no commentary full stop. He was this guest in this episode :). Intrested to hear his opinion!

@Ross Hi Ross, good questions. First of all, as you noticed, Martin had plenty to say! I reckon that man has definitely been in front of a camera before! So a bit tricky to get a word in edgeways :)

I genuinely liked the two wines, with the still rose a standout. I would echo your point about picking early. Picking decisions are usually based on flavour and physiological ripeness. Picking a rose early ensures lighter, more delicate fruit flavours, lower potential alcohol and higher potential acidity. I wasn't aware of the implications for the tannins in a rose, because as you say, the grapes have minimal skin and pip contact before they are separated. That said, there is some contact to extract those flavours and some colour, so you do have to ensure the tannins are 'ripe' when you're picking I would imagine. Can anyone else shed light on this?

I purchased a few bottles in London recently and thoroughly enjoyed them. Congratulations Martin.
