The second of two brilliant and expressive new releases from Oxney Estate, this is their first vintage ‘Classic’ Sparkling Rosé, and is made from 100% organically grown Pinot Noir. What makes this young release unique is that it is made with zero dosage.
On pouring, I was very struck by the gorgeous colour of this wine and enamoured with the bright, clean nose of wild strawberries, raspberries and lemon zest.
I’ve not always been sold on zero dosage English Sparkling, as our acidity can be a little bit bracing without sugar, but this is impeccably judged from Oxney. It’s brisk and lean, but the fruit has a brilliant purity and freshness that keeps you coming back.
A wine with lots of tertiary nuances, ripe stone fruit, red apple and hints of cranberry on the mid-taste with a delicious nutty, baked pastry complexity
Pretty cranberry and raspberry flavours partnering crisp apple and sweet pear notes.
A flourish of crisp apples and hints of white peach, before a wave of tangy red fruit and light spiced almond notes.
Soft, ripe apricot with surprisingly warming honeyed notes.
A refreshing light and elegant, low dosage Organic sparkling wine.
A light fresh white wine blend with wonderfully subtle textures.
