New Hall Pinot Noir Rosé, 2017
New Hall Vineyards
Taste Profile Where it's from
Not, as might be expected, from Kent or Sussex, this ultra-fresh Rosé comes from a 40ha site near Purleigh, Essex. Winemaker Piers Greenwood planted vines in 1969, making them some of the UK’s oldest. He won Winemaker of the Year in 2013, 2015 and 2016. A blend of Rondo, Acolon and Pinot Noir, this is from the wonderful 2017 vintage – a rosé full of Spring flowers, ripe cherry fruit and freshness. - Andy Howard MW
About the Wine
Piers Greenwood is a bit of a visionary, he planted his vineyard in Purleigh, Essex in 1969, which makes it one of the oldest in the UK.
The vineyard benefits from a very special microclimate and Purleigh is one of the warmest and sunniest spots in the country. Today New Hall Vineyard has 40 hectares under vine and one of the largest plantings of Bacchus in the UK. Winemaker Piers has won the prestigious UK Winemaker of the Year Award in 2013, 2015 and 2016 and his highly acclaimed and award-winning wines showcase English Wine at its best.
The grape vines grown at New Hall were carefully selected and have been planted at only 12 to 24 metres above sea level on well-sheltered, southern facing slopes of a shallow valley.
Over the years this site has proven itself to be an almost ideal place for the growing of vines in England, producing above average crops of high quality grapes with naturally high sugars each year.
Goes well with
Crisp, fresh and light-bodied, this Rose is a perfect wine to enjoy, well-chilled, on a warm summer’s day.
Delicious as an aperitif, it will accompany lighter poultry dishes such as roast chicken and guinea fowl, and will be a great combination with grilled prawns or pan-fried scallops.
