2016 Rosé Brut English Sparkling Wine
|Grapes||Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier|
|Origin||United Kingdom, England|
|Classification||English Sparkling Wine|
The Gusbourne Rosé is always quite a serious wine when first released, but with time in bottle it starts to unfurl into something much more complex and fun. Cherry blossom and wild roses with strawberry and cherry fruits on the nose, in the mouth it has a cool leaness, is direct and concentrated and then begins to open out with red fruits, flowers, earth, mocha and delicate spice. Driven along by a sleek pleasing acidity, it is a beauty. Drinking range: 2020 - 2023 L&S (Jun 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Despite boasting only a short history (the 2006 was their first release) Gusbourne Estate vineyards have notched up quite a reputation, winning awards along the way. The vineyard is at Appledore in Kent, roughly mid-way between Ashford and Rye. Planted with the 'usual' trio of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the grapes are hand-picked. A small portion of the harvest is fermented in oak, but most of it takes place in stainless-steel before the second fermentation in bottle. The wines are aged on their lees for a minimum of 22 months before dégorgement.
