Description

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.

Winemaking Notes

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.

About the vineyard

Oxney Organic Estate

Oxney Organic Estate is the UK’s largest single estate, organic vineyard, with over 35 acres of vines.

Kristin Syltevik and Paul Dobson created this mixed farm, with Kristin looking after the wine, and Paul running the arable and livestock aspects.

Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Précoce, Pinot Meunier and Seyval Blanc vines make up their English organic sparkling and still wines.

The whole estate is organic and run with a sustainable and natural approach.

‘Cover crops’ of plants, flowers and herbs are used between the vines to encourage potential pests away from the grapes, and they generate heat from coppiced wood chip.

The winery is located in an old Grade II listed square oast house.

The building has been converted to house the state of the art wine making technology required to make top quality organic English wine.

Receiving visitors is a top priority and the extensive restoration project has created a great location for winery tours and tastings.

A lot of hard work which creates a wonderful terroir for the vines to thrive and produce tasty grapes.
