Hattingley Valley Rose 2014

Size: 750

About This Wine

Pinot Noir 59%, Pinot Meunier 36%, Pinot Précoce 5%. Acidity 10.6g/L and residual sugar 9g/L. The 2013 Rosé was blended from the finest Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier parcels with approximately 10% of the blend having been fermented in four- and five-year-old Burgundy barrels. Before tirage the team blended the base wines with 5% red wine made from Pinot Précoce to give a delicate soft pink colour and some vibrant red fruit flavours. The wine spent at least 18 months ageing on lees in the bottle before being disgorged with 8g/L dosage. Subtle and delicate in colour, this is an elegant rosé with an abundance of red fruit and fresh acidity, supported by fine toasty notes developed by ageing on lees in the bottle.

The Wine Front – Hattingley Valley are a premium sparkling wine producer from England, a country with a surprising history in the fizzy wine world. Indeed, some historians claim sparkling wine’s origins are from England. This wine comes from southern England vineyards. It’s a blend of pinot noir and pinot meunier with a portion that spends time in barrels to mature and lend complexity. This wine has some bite, in the best possible sense. Acidity is ultra perky, it’s all red apple and white strawberry in the palate with a toothsome chomp that sits amongst the vibrant fizz of the wine. Fragrance is on point; red berries, vanilla, smoke. The wine is powerful, racy and very refreshing. The finish is so good – like a sip of fresh grapefruit juice. Those who like labels would call it ‘an excellent aperitif style’. And it is.


Jancis Robinson – Rather delicate red fruit. Very crisp and zesty and super-tight. Finesse in texture and purity. Really fruity and long and zingy. I think this has more to give, given time.
