'Cuvée Rosé'
Brut
England

This wine is all class. Serious sophistication. Where the Blanc de Blancs sits in its own perch atop British Fizz, the rosé shows some next level weight and complexity.

The hand-picked Pinot Noir was crushed then underwent a two day cold soak in stainless steel tank. It was cool fermented for around 14 days prior to malolactic fermentation. A varietal yeast was used for the first ferment and then the 18- 2007 Champagne yeast for the second (in bottle). This wine was aged on the lees for a minimum of 32 months prior to disgorgement.

A superb vintage, traditional method, quality sparkling wine. A fine mousse, tightly beaded. On the nose a touch of yeast, notes of raspberry and dry strawberry, with subtle savoury undertones adding complexity. Ideal with hors d‘oeuvres and starters, great with fish, cheese and some red berry desserts.

THE BOLNEY ESTATE

WEST SUSSEX

Hidden in the heart of rural Sussex, one of Britain’s most beautiful southern counties, lies Bolney Wine Estate, a vineyard which carries on the tradition brought to Britain by the Romans nearly 2,000 years ago. This esteemed property is situated on a hill which was part of the Butting Hill One Hundred, listed in the Domesday Book in 1086, as the first official land survey of what is now the United Kingdom.
