Hattingley Valley's multi-award winning delicate and textural sparkling Rosé. Subtle and delicate in colour this is an elegant Rosé with an abundance of bright red fruit and fresh acidity, supported by fine toasty notes developed by ageing on lees in the bottle. Winemaker Will Perkins enjoys our Rosé with Cherrystone Clam Chowder served with freshly baked bread. 2014 was the best vintage to date at Hattingley Valley with near perfect growing conditions. The Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes were hand picked and gently pressed. Approximately 8% of the blend was fermented in 4-5 year old white Burgundy barrels and partial malolactic fermentation took place. The wine spent 5 months in tank and barrel before tirage where 2% of Pinot Précoce (having been vinified as a still red wine with a long cold soak prior to fermentation) was added to enhance colour, body and flavour. The wine spent at least 2 years ageing on lees in the bottle before riddling and disgorging with 8 g/L dosage, and a further 2 months ageing on cork before release.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Rosé is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 20% Pinot Noir Pécoce. Now this is a very impressive sparkling Rosé. It has a succinct bouquet of freshly picked strawberry, red cherry and a touch of green apple, all precise and quite mineral-driven. The palate is fresh on the entry with a slight waxiness to the texture. It has more complexity than its peers and it fans out gloriously with hints of praline and strawberry towards the vivacious finish. This is one to serve to the next person that refutes the idea of great English sparkling wine.
