“England’s most exclusive Pink Fizz”, Balfour Brut Rosé is grown on Hush Heath Estate from three classic Champagne grape varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
Hidden from the world by a giant cordon sanitaire of ancient woodland, the flavour and philosophy of Balfour Brut Rosé owes much to its historic setting. The fine soils, mild climate and long history of fruit growing, has made the Weald of Kent home to the finest vineyards planted in the UK in the last 50 years.
“My aim is to make the finest Rosé Sparkling Wine, comparable with the great Rosé Champagnes. The passion and enthusiasm of everyone involved with Balfour Brut Rosé has led to us winning a number of prestigious international awards.” – Richard Balfour-Lynn, Producer
2004, the very first vintage of Balfour Brut Rosé was released in 2007 to huge critical acclaim, it won a gold medal and trophy at the International Wine Challenge, the biggest blind tasting in the world. This was only the second time that an English wine has received such an accolade during the 25 year history of the competition. The 2005 vintage, released a year later was awarded a gold medal and the first trophy ever awarded to an English wine in the 2009 Decanter World Wine Awards.
