The Ambriel Rosé 2014 is a Traditional Method English Sparkling Rosé with a twist. It is crafted from hand-selected Pinot Noir grapes from a single, low-yielding Burgundian clone (777) from rows 2 – 39 of the East vineyard. It was vinified with skin contact (rather than blending a white and red wine) and turned every 3 hours to create the delicate pink colour, using only the free run. It’s a Rosé that is succulent and juicy with depth, structure and complexity. We were so impressed with it that it is the first Rosé which we have made as a vintage Rosé. The Ambriel Rosé 2014 overbrims with wild strawberries and sun-warmed raspberries, tantilising with a flirtatious freshness and a refined effervesence. Sip and smile.
