Hoffmann & Rathbone Rosé Réserve

Sussex, UK

2011

Rosé

Chardonnay, Pinot Noir

Decanter World Wine Awards 2015 - Silver

International Wine Challenge 2015 - Silver

Redcurrant and cranberry vie for attention with the slightly wilder notion of rosehip to create a lifted aroma with a wonderful edge of aromatic tisane, hinting at some evolution. The palate confirms this with wonderfully rich autolysis: oatmeal and biscuit, a touch of honey and the alluring brightness of both fresh and candied lemon peel. This is utterly slender but totally profound. A subtle, impressive and convincing wine with just the right amount of evolution. This is serious enough to take on subtle foods. The finish is rich but never lets go of its inherent English briskness."
94/100 Wine Enthusiast

"English sparkling wine is a hot topic at the moment with an entire week dedicated to its rise in fame (Saturday 26th May – Sunday 3rd June). And with good reason – we’re creating incredible sparkling wine in this country, easily rivalling champagnes of the same price. Fresh, bright and dry with notes of rose and rhubarb, this award-winning drop is from a Sussex vineyard utilising a blend of 85% pinot noir and 15% barrel fermented chardonnay grapes before being aged for 40 months."
Stacey Smith for IndyBest, "13 best rosé wines" (June-2018)

"The 2011 Rosé Réserve Brut is salmon pink in colour, with a soft, finepearled mousse and persistent effervescence, notes of strawberry, red fruits, peach, nectarine and a floral touch of rose petals delight the palate. With lovely aroma persistence and a bright, lemony finish, this is a lively wine with fruity focus and balanced acidity.”
Winemaker, Ulrich Hoffmann

Rathbone and Hoffmann's Winemaker, Ulrich Hoffmann, has an impressive international 16-year career to lean on. It was not only his passion for sparkling wine that finally bought Ulrich to New House Winery on the Mountfield Estate in Sussex, but a long, long-distance love affair with now wife Birgit Rathbone. The couple got to work, combined their names and the result is a collection of award winning English sparkling wine.

The Rosé Réserve Brut is a blend of 85% Pinot Noir and 15% barrel fermented Chardonnay, aged 40 months on lees. Lovely and bright with a fresh finish,
