2019 Rosé de Saignée, Everflyht, Sussex

2019 Rosé de Saignée, Everflyht, Sussex

The first single estate sparkling wine to be produced at Everflyht, the Rosé de Saignée 2019 is a blend of hand-picked Pinot Noir and Meunier. The Saignée method of rosé production is more complicated than adding red wine into the blend. Instead it extracts colour from a short period of skin contact, in this instance, just 12 hours was enough to get the colour and richness of fruit. It is packed full of summer fruits and a wonderful creamy and fresh brioche note on the nose. The palate is fruit driven with notes of ripe red cherry, sweet wild strawberry and a soft backbone of cream. A light acidity is balanced with a rounded mouthfeel that gives the wine weight and an elegant finish. Fantastic food wine, that you shouldn't be afraid to decant.

Tasting notes

Deep, bright orange-pink. Masses of strawberries on the nose but this is one of the most unusual English pink fizzes I have ever tasted! This is an explosion of blood orange and morello cherries and pomegranate with a lashing of sumac and sweet-hot paprika. This tastes as if it should carry a label saying, Made In Morocco. Just gorgeous. Crazy outgoing, exuberant, cartwheeling flavour. Full of fireworks and joy. This is street dancing! A flash mob in a bottle!
