Botham & Balfour English Sparkling & Still Rosé in a Wooden Hand Embossed Gift Box

£55.00

Welcome to one of the most exciting collaborations in wine, since English wine began!

Sir Ian Botham OBE, one of the greatest cricketers that England has ever produced and now an accomplished winemaker in his own right, has joined together with Richard and Leslie Balfour-Lynn, the passionate driving force behind the award winning Hush Heath Estate. With the shared desire to champion English wine around the world, they have collaborated to produce this exceptional Sparkling & Still Rosé from the Garden of England, Kent.

The Sparkling Rosé was made from selected Cuvees, blended for a young, fresh, pink fruit dominated style. The grapes were hand-harvested and taken into the winery where they were fermented in cool stainless steel tanks to ensure clean varietal fruit character and aromatic intensity. After secondary fermentation in the bottle, each was stored for a further 12 months on lees.

Still Rosé – The 2018 vintage was a glorious one. Perfect weather conditions throughout the season led to the hand harvesting of grapes that were bright, full of ripe fruit flavours and fresh English acidity.
Once the grapes were in the winery, they were gently whole bunch pressed to delicately release the juice. This was followed by cool fermentation with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks.

This wine is made in the Provencal style. The key style considerations in the making of this wine were to showcase the delicate, silky smooth, aromatic flavours of the fruit whilst carefully balancing the fine acidity.

This wine is suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
