Oxney Classic Sparkling Rosé is a fresh and fruity sparkling rosé. Delicate hints of red plums and subtle wild strawberry notes on the nose. Fresh and youthful with moderate lees contact for a perfect balance with its fruity character.
We think Oxney Classic Sparkling Rosé is perfect for popping at a celebration.
2019 Growing Season
The summer of 2019 was warm but also quite wet. This is not an ideal combination for growing grapes in the marginal climate of the UK. Oxney managed however to keep the grapes and vines healthy through a diligent approach to canopy management, leaf stripping and organic spray products.
Oxney hand-picked early- to mid-October, with the fruit for this 100% Pinot Noir wine coming from our Thompson, Hunt and Dobson blocks. The grapes were whole-bunch pressed, fermented to dryness partly in barrels, then put through malolactic fermentation. In early April 2020 the carefully selected components were blended – and red Pinot Noir was added at this point – and the wine was bottled for the second fermentation. To preserve the intense fruit and freshness in this wine we decided to disgorge early after just 15 months on lees and with zero dosage.
