The Botham & Balfour Sparkling Rosé

This Sparkling Rosé was made from selected Cuvees, blended for a young, fresh, pink fruit dominated style. The grapes were hand harvested and taken into the winery where they were fermented in cool stainless steel tanks to ensure clean varietal fruit character and aromatic intensity. After secondary fermentation in the bottle, each was stored for a further 12 months on lees.

True to Balfour’s signature style and Sir Ian’s preferred flavour profile, this wine is the perfect marriage of clean ripe fruit, complexity and fresh English acidity. The colour is a beautiful apricot pink with a vigorous mousse that lingers and a fine bead that persists in the glass.

The aromas are as delicate and as appealing as the colour of this wine is in the glass. Gentle flavours of sweet raspberry are most prominent alongside the refreshing mousse.

This sparkling wine is dry and fresh and displays a crisp acidity on the palate. This acidity is gently combined with the delicate raspberry and white currant fruit flavours to give a delicious mouth feel and a very generous finish.

This wine is suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
