A dozen English rosés to try during English Wine Week

Blackbook I’d Rather be a Rebel Rosé 2018 (£17.50)

Boasting one of the coolest labels in town, this juicy drop is the creation of husband and wife duo Sergio and Lynsey Verrillo, and is made at their urban winery under a railway arch in Battersea from Pinot Noir from Crouch Valley vineyard in Essex. Passionate about making minimum intervention wines, the grapes were cold soaked then whole-bunch pressed and fermented with indigenous yeast in old Burgundy barrels for eight months. The result is “an expressive and textured dry rosé with aromas of strawberries and cream, ripe red cherry and crushed raspberry”.
