Dry sparkling rosé wine, 75cl. Medium bodied 100% Chardonnay from East Sussex, England, United Kingdom. 12.0% ABV.
This delicious new Blanc de Blancs 2015 sparkling wine was released in the autumn of 2022. 100% Chardonnay and deep golden in colour; long aging on its lees have produced a gorgeously, rich, well-rounded flavour which perfectly captures maturer flavours, whilst still retaining its fresh fruit and bright acidity.
Fermented in stainless steel and held in barrel and tank until bottling in April 2018. The wine was lees aged until disgorging in September 2020, followed by a further 24 months of bottle ageing.
