This is a complex Saignée Rosé, capturing red berries and spice from the predominantly Pinot Noir base, lifted by a hint of Chardonnay and Pinot Gris

It has bready notes initially on the nose, with light flavours of raspberry and redcurrant on the palate leading to a zesty lift of pink grapefruit and a long, refreshing finish.

Runner up in the Sparkling Winemaker of the Year competition at the prestigious Sommelier Wine Awards (only beaten by Taittinger!), Fox & Fox are a husband and wife boutique wine making team close to the ancient village of Mayfield in East Sussex, at the heart of the exploding English Sparkling Wine's most famous region.
