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 this 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.
