Railway Barn Sparkling Rosé

Wine Type:
grape varieties:


Here’s something that doesn’t take itself seriously, but comes from a hugely respected and historic vineyard, is New Hall’s Railway Barn Sparkling Rosé. This is a celebration of the summer, blending the early ripening red grape Acolon with the aromatic Huxelrebe, and is produced using the Charmat method.

It’s deep pink in hue and to match has a bright nose of strawberry and cherry, a hint of cherry candy and lots of floral aromatics.

The palate is fruit-forward and generous. There are lots of ripe strawberry and cherry flavours, and a flavour that reminds me of those cherry drops sweets that used to be popular in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Sure, there’s a bit of sweetness in there, but it’s in balance, cut through with bright acidity and broad bubbles.

This would be effortlessly enjoyable drank straight out of the fridge on a warm summer’s day – perfect for this warm end to English wine week!
