22nd January, 2014 by Lauren Eads

English sparkling wine producers Hattingley Valley has released its first vintage rosé.

HattingleyThe Hampshire based winery showcased its 2011 sparkling rosé, made by winemaker Emma Rice, at an event in Soho on 21 January.

The sparkling rosé is a blend of Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Pinot Noir Précoce, an early ripening mutation, with subtle strawberry notes.

Established in 2008, Hattingley Valley planted its first 28-acre vineyard with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier overseen by its head winemaker, Emma Rice.

The estate now boasts 60-acres from which the team use “traditional methods” and oak barrels to produce their sparkling wine.

In July 2013 Hattingley Valley joined the English sparkling portfolio of Liberty Wines alongside Nyetimber, Coates & Seely and English still wine maker Stopham Esate.

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.
