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
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!
