Subtle and delicate in colour, this is an elegant sparkling 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.

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.

Winemaker Emma Rice said of the vintage: "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."

Simon Robinson, owner of Hattingley Valley, didn’t want to make a Rosé as he didn’t think it was a ‘serious wine’. However, once winemaker Emma won the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championship Award for ‘Best Vintage Rosé in the world’, he changed his mind. This is now Simon’s favourite wine in the range.

Hampshire, England

The geology of Hampshire is Jurassic limestone and chalk, perfect for growing the trio of sparkling wine grapes - Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir. The English wine revival started here, on the chalk of the South Downs, in 1951 at Hambledon Vineyard. More recently other quality vineyards have sprung up around Winchester.

Sparkling Blend

The grapes, most commonly Chardonnay, Pinot noir and Pinot meunier, are used to make several base wines that are assembled together to make Champagne, English Sparkling wine and other classic cuvée wines.

Champagne blends can also include Arbane, Petit Meslier, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris. Other appelations have rules about which grapes can be included.
