Hambledon is one of the most exciting of all the English sparkling wine producers. They’ve just released their first rosé, and it’s really impressive.
Hambledon Rosé NV Hampshire, England
12% alcohol. 90% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir (red wine). 95% of 2014 vintage and 5% reserve wines, some aged in barrel. This is beautiful. It has vivid, slightly crunchy cranberry and red cherry characters as well as keen but finely integrated acidity and impeccable balance with just a touch of sweetness balancing the acid, and adding volume in the process. Really fine and with more than a hint of seriousness. Long, mineral finish. 92/100
