Gusbourne Estate in Appledore, Kent is one of English Wines' fastest rising stars. With 22ha of vines planted in the Kentish countryside just 6 miles from the coast, enjoying the Channel's moderating influence on climate to produce fruit of exceptional quality leading to distinctive, delicious wines. Production is concentrated on Sparkling Wines, but when the weather permits, a small quantity of still wine is made.
This Rosé fizz is another stunner, a very attractive pink colour, the nose is full of ripe wild strawberry and raspberry that carry onto the clean, dry palate with added fruit weight. The mousse is unctuous and satisfying, accentuating the red fruit character with tingly acidity and a soft spice. Flavoursome enough to stand up to fish of antipasti dishes but equally delicious alone.
