The exciting thing about vintage wines such as Balfour is the way the wines reveal the characteristics of each English summer.

2013 was an unusually late harvest as we waited patiently for the best balance of sugars and acid in our grapes. Picking began with the Pinot Noir on 22nd October and the final batch of Chardonnay came in on the 7th November.

Balfour Brut Rosé, "England's most exclusive pink fizz", is produced from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier grown exclusively on Hush Heath Estate. It is a multi-award winning vintage English Quality Sparkling Wine crafted using the traditional method made famous in Champagne.

Fruit is hand harvested and gently pressed in our state-of-the-art winery and then it is fermented in cool, stainless steel tanks. After a secondary fermentation in the bottle (Champagne method), the wine then spends 3 years ageing on its lees and is disgorged to order to maintain freshness.

Grape Varieties: 48% Chardonnay, 44% Pinot Noir, 8% Pinot Meunier

Alcohol: 12%

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Delicate pale copper pink with a fine, sustained bead.

Nose: Very clean with hints of fresh rosehip, greengage, apple and ginger.

Palate: Extremely refreshing with classic English mouth-watering acidity. Displays notes of white currant, quince, lime and a slight herbiness, typical of the Hush Heath style. The finish is long, echoing the palate beautifully.

Ageing Potential: 2+ years

Food Pairings: Scallops with Kent Chorizo is our Winemaker’s favourite!

    Delicious, better than Champagne! Had a bottle of this at Hakkasan in Mayfair and was really impressed. I usually drink Billicart Salmon Rose but will keep my eyes out for this going forward, it's more fresh and easy to drink, and was great with the food
