Rathfinny Wine Estate, Classic Cuvée Brut
Out of stock
This family-owned estate was established in 2010 by Mark and Sarah Driver, with the first Rathfinny Estate vineyards being planted in April 2012. The estate vineyard is a glorious site in the South Downs, Sussex; a south-facing slope with free-draining chalk soils found just three miles from the Channel. Here we find the ideal conditions to ripen the classic Champagne varieties for English sparkling wine.
The Rathfinny Classic Cuvée is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier. It was fermented solely in stainless steel and, like all Rathfinny’s base wines, went through malolactic fermentation. It was aged on lees in bottle for 36 months prior to disgorgement. The wine displays vivid aromas of grapefruit, red apple and brioche on the nose. The palate has real focus with zesty acidity and creamy texture. Rich, biscuity notes lead to a refreshing and moreish finish.
