2018

The Botham & Balfour English Rosé

Welcome to one of the most exciting collaborations in wine, since English wine began! Sir Ian Botham  has joined together with Richard and Leslie Balfour-Lynn, the passionate driving force behind the award winning Hush Heath Estate. With the shared desire to champion English wine around the world, they have collaborated to produce this Rosé from the Garden of England, Kent.

The 2018 vintage was a glorious one. Perfect weather conditions throughout the season led to the hand harvesting of grapes that were bright, full of ripe fruit flavours and fresh English acidity.

Once the grapes were in the winery, they were gently whole bunch pressed to delicately release the juice. This was followed by cool fermentation with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks.

This wine is made in the Provencal style. The key style considerations in the making of this wine were to showcase the delicate, silky smooth, aromatic flavours of the fruit whilst carefully balancing the fine acidity.

Tasting notes

Wine Style

Provencal is style, this Rose is summer in a bottle. The key style considerations in the making of this wine were to showcase the delicate, silky smooth, aromatic flavours of the fruit whilst carefully balancing the fine acidity.

Colour

Soft, pale pink with golden hues.

Nose

Delicate aromas of citrus fruit, orchard flowers and strawberries are carefully balanced with an undertone of subtle spice.

Palate

The aromas on the nose are followed through to the palate where the wine really opens up and shows its elegance. Flavours of lime combine with the others and the wine finishes with a delicious persistence and appealing length.

Wine Analyses

This wine is suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.

Peak Drinking

The finesse and balance of this wine makes it appealing now but with careful cellaring, this wine will keep for up to 3 years.
