WINE REVIEW

High Clandon is a labour of love for owners Bruce & Sibylla. Their vision is clear – great wines need a lot. This is their first ever rosé, a blend of 71% Chardonnay and 29% Pinot Noir that has spent 5 years on the lees.

A bronzed and salmon coloured rose with refined bubbles that show superb persistence. Immediately different character on the nose; the red fruit minimal, with more complex aromas of toasted nut, biscuit and orange peel.

The taste is also more mature, led by a crisp bracing acidity and citrus zest. Delicate flavours of ripe strawberry with lots of biscuit complexity.

Absolutely one of the finest Rosé's I’ve had this year – this is a real triumph for patience!
