Named after the vineyards’ “Head Dog” Liberty, This wine is brim-full of Kentish vitality and flavour. Pale white gold with green highlights, an intense grassy and pineapple nose with hints of rose petal and citrus. Very Bacchus. Part barrel fermented with wild yeasts giving a complex palate, crisp fresh acidity, kiwi, green apple, orange citrus all carried through on a long, clean, and beguiling finish. An ideal aperitif or food wine; try it with English asparagus, artichoke, salami, ham and oriental cuisine.
There is absolutely nothing subtle about this wine, and yet it retains its elemental Englishness. The fruit might be tropical, but the heart and bones are pure Albion. I'd have this over a clanging New Zealand Sauvignon any day.
Plump seared scallops and smoky chorizo are the perfect accompaniment to our Balfour Brut Rosé, balancing the fresh fruits and acidity with a moreish salty richness.
