Hattingley Valley currently has 10 partner vineyards in Hampshire and over 35,000 of its own vines on an 11-hectare vineyard planted primarily with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

The 2011 Classic Cuvée was the estate’s first release and is a blend of these three varieties.

Three further varieties are set for release in 2013 including a Blanc de Blancs, 2010 Classic Cuveé and a limited edition 2010 Kings Cuveé.

The Hattingley Valley sparkling rosé 2011 has an RRP of £34.96, and will be available from Liberty Wines from 23 January.
