Flint Vineyards, Charmat Rosé, Norfolk, England, 2020Regular price £24.00
Flint were the first producer in the UK to start fermenting a sparkling wine using the Charmat method of production. Unlike the traditional method used in Champagne, the secondary fermentation is completed in a tank rather than bottle giving a more approachable style. It is the method used for all Prosecco wines.
This wine is neither a Prosecco nor a Champagne but, rather, is uniquely English. It makes a fantastic aperitif and lends itself to summer days. It is full of red berry fruits and sassy acidity and has been described by Matthew Jukes as a ‘dreamy stunner’ and ‘the best wine in the world made by this method’.
