The Grange Pink NV

It’s hard to believe that The Grange is one of the youngest of the established names in Hampshire. In a few short years since the release of their first wines, they have really made a name for themselves, particularly for their sparkling wines.

Take their latest Pink, for example, which is based largely on the colder 2019 vintage and a blend of 57% Pinot Meunier and 38% Pinot Noir, with a seasoning of solera reserve wine. The wine now has 32 months on lees and a generous dosage of 12g/l – though you wouldn’t know! It’s in perfect balance, helped by the fact that more than two-thirds of the wine didn’t go through malolactic fermentation.

The wine’s delicate pink blush is lifted by a perfumed nose of cherry and redcurrant, with a definite floral note and hints of pastry and confectionery.

On the palate, fine beads of bubbles and a chalky lemony bite soften to a mixture of red summer berries and pastry. There’s a real vibrancy to the acidity, but at the same time a ripe red fruit core and hints of cherry shortbread complexity.
