English Organic Rosé Sparkling Wine, Sedlescombe 2013 Rosé Brut,
Lovely bright and intense rosehip colour with a steady fine stream of bubbles. On the nose 18 months of lees ageing is evident with aromas of toast and yeast, which are balanced by subtle fruit aromas of quince and blackcurrant leaf. The fruity nose continues onto the palate, where the initial explosion of mousse is followed up by the sweetness stone fruits and balanced with the good acidity of crab apples. The finish is long, and well structured. She'll love this one! 11.5% vol. 75cl bottle.
NO PLASTIC FOIL TOP - In keeping with our organic ethos, we resist the use of excess packaging and plastic. Instead of covering the top of the bottle with a plastic or foil capsule like most wineries do, we leave the wire-hood that holds the cork in place visible, displaying its gold-coloured wire and branded top which maintains decorum by ensuring that the bottle looks finished - even if slightly under-dressed!
