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 sparkling wine crafted using the traditional method (secondary fermentation in bottle, followed by extensive lees ageing).
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, the wine then spends a minimum of 30 months ageing on its lees and is disgorged to order to maintain freshness.
Grape Varieties: 48% Chardonnay, 39% Pinot Noir, 13% Pinot Meunier
Appearance: The palest of pinks, with a fine, sustained bead.
Nose: Clean and fresh with notes of wild strawberry, lime and redcurrant.
Palate: Typically vibrant English acidity combines with ripe orchard and summer berry fruits. A wonderfully long and refreshing finish.
Ageing Potential: 8+ years
Food Pairings: Scallops with Kent Chorizo is our Winemaker’s favourite!
