WINE REVIEW

The star of a strong sparkling showing from Kent’s Hush Heath, their Balfour Brut Rosé 2011 is a blend of 46% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay and 9% Pinot Meunier.

Very clean fresh nose of lemon, red berries with slight hints of darker fruit and creamy yeasty notes.

Very refined on the palate, the acidity is mild with just hints of sweetness, this allows the fruit to do the talking. Think summer berry mix of raspberry and strawberry, creamy texture, light mousse and just a hint of mineral and biscuit.

Very refreshing and a perfect English Rosé.
