Hambledon Classic Cuvee Rose English Sparkling Wine 75cl 12% ABV
Hambledon Classic Cuvee Rose English Sparkling Wine
A beautiful, vivid wild-strawberry pink with a hue of red onion skin on the rim. On the nose, magnolia blossom is followed stridently by perfumed wild strawberry compote with hints of buttered white sourdough toast. The palate is rich and mouth filling with flavours of strawberry balanced by zingy tart cranberry and pithy Amalfi lemon notes. The texture is creamy with a clean, crisp, yeasty finish
Great as an aperitif but also a good companion to salmon fillet and desserts made with summer fruits and berries.
Hambledon has been established since 1952 and their wines are produced in the England's oldest commercial vineyard. In 1999, the current managing director acquired the vineyard with a view to restoring it to its former glory. The vineyards are planted on upper cretaceous belemite chalk, famous for Sparkling Wine production.
Today Hambledon comprises over 200 acres spread over numerous vineyard sites. Each vineyard is planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – the three grape varieties most commonly used in the production of Champagne.
