I had the pleasure of stopping by at Herbert Hall in Marden, Kent, this month. I have a larger feature on this exciting, artisan producer coming in the next couple of weeks but I had to get the word out on their sparkling rosé.
First up, there’s the beautiful nose of raspberry, cranberry and wild strawberries with a delicate hint of shortbread and biscuit.
The Herbert Hall Rosé 2015 is even more delicious to taste, with a fruit-forward palate of ripe strawberry and raspberry, and tangy redcurrant and citrus notes.
There is also a very welcoming light creaminess to this wine which adds texture and contrast to the fresh, crisp red berry fruit flavours. It’s just exactly the kind of rosé that you want to be sipping outdoors on a hot summer’s day.
