Ground breaker: Exton Park Pinot Meunier rosé
Exton Park Pinot Meunier Rosé NV, England, 11.5%
It’s national rosé day this Saturday (11th June), when it’s also Her Majesty The Queen’s official 90th birthday. We’re also launching the brand new Tickled Pink rosé category as part of Follow Your Taste. So we thought the least we could do was get into the spirit of things by recommending a rosé a day for a week.
This brand new, first ever pure Pinot Meunier rosé from Hampshire is a delight – with floral scents and a tangy but elegant flavour profile. Winemaker Corinne Seely says, ‘I’m not here to copy Champagne. This is an English early summer garden in a glass, with a purity, elegance and minerality you won’t find in Pinot Meunier from Champagne.’ (Peter, May 2016, 7/10)
