Roving Sommelier loves premium quality sparkling and pink wines from around the world. Even better when these expressive homegrown wines are made with love and care within Great Britain. For me, they’re ideal for those who prefer their sparkling wines to be playful yet serious and perfect for parties and celebrations.
Exton Park is a Hampshire sparkling wine producer with a 60-acre single vineyard planted on a south facing slope in the South Downs National Park. Their first vines were planted in 2003, including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, and their state-of-the-art winery was built in 2011. A luxurious, private event space overlooking the vineyard is also under construction and will be opening later this year. With a 60-acre single vineyard, a bespoke winery, and a breath-taking promotional facility all on one estate, Exton Park will be able to offer guests an unrivalled English wine experience. 2021 marks the release of their Reserve Blend range. These are traditional method sparkling wines that challenge classic winemaking conventions. They do not rely on a base vintage like other English sparkling wine producers. Over 80% of each blend is composed from their extensive archive of reserve wines.
The number of reserves in each blend is reflected in the name of each wine. For example, Exton Park RB28 Blanc de Noirs is created from a blend of 28 wines. This unique approach has been pioneered by Head Winemaker Corinne Seely to ensure consistency, quality, and complexity with each bottling.
Exton Park Reserve Blend 23 Rosé is a blend of 23 reserve wines comprising 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier. The two black grape varieties are pressed slowly and gently to draw out the distinctive colour and flavours. The result is a delicate, dry Rosé with a balanced, floral character and complex notes of white peach and red berries. Utterly delicious!
Best enjoyed served chilled and in a convivial atmosphere.
