The rose expression of Hambledon Classic Cuvee. Aged a minimum of 45 months, this Chardonnay-led blend will reveal rich aromas of red fruits, delivered in a clean, crisp, yeasty finish. The nose is so beguiling, mixing the aroma of fresh pink lady apples and candied rhubarb, with beautiful, subtle hints of vanilla and brioche bread. Truly classy, but the mouth-watering aroma still doesn’t prepare you for the simply stunning satin fruit. A texture of pure silk with aftertaste of cranberries, pomegranate and ruby grapefruit. A world class sparkling rosé. Enjoy as an aperitif or with a fruit tart.

    Description

    Established in 1952 by Major General Sir Guy Salisbury-Jones, Hambledon in the South Downs is England’s oldest commercial vineyard. Ian Kellett acquired Hambledon Vineyard in 1999. As a passionate wine lover, Ian was intrigued by the winemaking heritage of the property. After analysing the commercial potential for English wine, he began studying oenology at Plumpton College in Sussex with a view to restoring Hambledon to its former glory.

    In 2011 Hervé Jestin joined the team, formerly one of Champagne’s leading chefs de cave. A renowned expert in minimal-intervention winemaking, Hervé directs all winemaking at the Estate. It’s widely accpeted that Hambeldon is one of the best and most exciting producers in English wine!

      Rich and mouth filling with flavours of strawberry. Creamy with a clean, crisp, yeasty finish.

    Pale salmon in color, the NV Classic Cuvée Rosé comes mainly from the 2015 harvest with a minimum 30 months’ aging on the lees. Dosage is 10 g/L. The forward, well-delineated bouquet features strawberry, clementine and light marine-influenced aromas that together form quite complex aromatics; with aeration, it becomes increasingly leesy. The palate is very fruit-forward on the entry, continuing with that strawberry leitmotif, hints of mango and orange, and a lively, quite spicy finish that reveals a dab of ginger. The nose seems to have more sophistication than the punter-friendly palate, but overall a decent sparkling rosé to drink now.
