A dozen English rosés to try during English Wine Week

Bluebell Vineyard Ashdown Rosé (£15)

Winning the prize for the prettiest winery name, Bluebell Vineyard is nestled among the fields of Uckfield in Sussex. Its refreshing onion skin hued rosé is made from a blend of Pinot Noir and Merlot, leading to a “bone dry, fruit forward” drop with notes of wild strawberry, cranberry, rhubarb and violets, a creamy mouthfeel and a long finish. Its makers suggest either enjoying it as an apéritif or pairing it with salted almonds, smoked duck and cured meats. “2018 delivered fruit of exceptional quality with a great concentration of sugars and fruit flavours,” the estate said.
