A dozen English rosés to try during English Wine Week

Hush Heath Nanette’s Rosé 2019 (£18)

Founded by former Liberty London owner, Richard Balfour-Lynn, Hush Health in Kent has long been a champion of rosé, choosing to make a hero of it in the estate’s flagship fizz. Hush Heath also produces exemplary still rosés, including one made in collaboration with former cricketer Sir Ian Botham. Nanette’s rosé is named after Balfour-Lynn’s youngest daughter from a blend of Regent, Dornfelder, Pinot Noir, Meunier, Chardonnay and Bacchus. At just 11.5% AVB, Richard describes it as “English summer in a bottle”, due to its notes of fresh strawberries, green apple and hints of thyme and rosemary. It makes a lovely partner for lobster, or prawn cocktail if you’re going retro.
