A dozen English rosés to try during English Wine Week

Oxney English Pinot Noir Rosé 2018 (£16.99)

A new addition to Waitrose’s bountiful English and Welsh wine range, featuring over 110 locally made wines, this rosé from Oxney in Beckley, East Sussex, is made from pure Pinot Noir. According to its maker, the copper coloured rosé is “delicate yet expressive with lifted notes of freshly cut strawberries and redcurrant”. On the palate the pink is “generous and fruit forward, combining great texture with a crisp finish”. Six miles north of Rye, the organic Oxney estate is run by Kristin Syltevik and Paul Dobson, who have 14 hectares under vine and make wine in an oast house.
