Exton Park is an award-winning 55 acre vineyard on the prized chalk slopes of Hampshire's South Downs, south of Winchester. All its wines are made from grapes grown on this one, single estate with its wealth of individual plots, and using state-of-the-art technology. They are using perfect expression of this unique English terroir.
A sparkling pale pink rosé with a surprising depth of fruit, this wine is made by very slowly and carefully pressing 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier grapes for just the right amount of time to achieve the subtle color. The wine displays its delicate pink color like new rose buds blossoming. After an open and enticing nose of strawberry licorice, the wine reveals rich fruit characters in the mouth, including white peach and the rich plum flavors of the Pinot Noir. Exton Park's single-vineyard is planted on the rolling chalk slopes of Hampshire's South Downs National Park. The result of three careful plantings over a number of years, at 55 acres, it is one of the largest vineyards in the county.
Tasting note: "The perfume on this wine today...! It's soaring out the glass! Rose petals and tiny wild strawberries and a little bit of Turkish delight. Peachy rounded and so incredibly charming. This is all kitten, rubbing up and down and purring on the tongue. A touch of ripe orange and the finest, filigree-lace bead. Racy, drawing minerality like a seam down the spine of the wine."
