WINE REVIEW

Much like their Blanc de Noirs, this is 100% Pinot Noir grown entirely at Lyme Bay’s own Southcote Estate.

This wine has the most glass appeal – a prominent but pale pink hue that echoes the carefully matched colour of the foil on the bottle. Fine streams of bubbles lift aromas of strawberry and raspberry with hints of sweet nutty pastry.

The most harmonious of all four Lyme Bay sparkling wines, the Rosé has a striking profile with flavours of red apple and raspberry up front. The mid taste is more rounded, though with a redcurrant tang in the background.

Whilst the sweetest of all four wines, there’s still that brilliant cutting freshness that makes this a superbly balanced summer sipper.
