Simon originally didn’t want to make a Rosé as he didn’t think it was a ‘serious wine’. However, once Emma won the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championship Award for ‘Best Vintage Rosé in the world’, he soon changed his mind! Ironically, this is now Simon’s favourite wine in the range and also Emma’s favourite to make, so, we are pretty sure you will like it too.

Harvest

2018 was a great year for the English wine industry with a nearly perfect growing season - a very cold and wet winter that delayed bud burst, ideal conditions at flowering and a record-breaking long summer, resulted in high yields and excellent quality fruit with good concentration of sugars and balancing acidity.

‘There are a few vintages that mark themselves indelibly in a winemaker’s mind and 2018 was one of those. Not only for the quality of the grapes that we harvested, but for the sheer volume that came our way and ripeness.’
Emma Rice
Head Winemaker

Winemaking

The Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes were hand-picked and gently whole-bunch pressed. Approximately 7% of the blend was fermented in 4-5 year old Burgundy barrels, adding a lovely texture and richness to the wine, and partial malolactic fermentation took place in order to soften the wine’s natural acidity. The wine spent 8 months in tank and barrel before tirage where 5% of Pinot Précoce (having been vinified as a still red) was added to enhance colour, body and flavour. The wine undergoes second fermentation in bottle and ageing on its lees for 24 months before disgorging.

Rosé 2018

Subtle and delicate in colour, this is an elegant Rosé with soft mousse and lovely red fruit aromas. On the palate, an abundance of redcurrant and ripe crunchy red apple flavours, supported by a hint of toasty notes. A refreshing wine with well balanced acidity.

Food Pairing

We enjoy our Rosé with Cherrystone Clam Chowder served with freshly baked bread.
