WHY WE LOVE IT
We love Rathfinny and this may be our favourite cuvée. It's certainly the estate's flagship wine. It has a gorgeous lighted nose of red fruits like cherry and baked red apples, with hazelnuts and brioche jostling for the lime-light. The mouthfeel is rich and weighty, but with an elegant vein of acidity carrying the wine for an almost eternal finish.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
We’ve long admired Rathfinny’s wines. As a relative newcomer to the English wine movement, it was tempting at first to dismiss them as another big brand with plenty of cash, sticking identikit trad-method plonk in posh bottles. Tasting the wines is enough to convince you otherwise, but having the opportunity to visit the estate gives a lot of perspective as to what the good folk are up to.
The business is entirely family owned and spoken about as a passion project for the owners. Though it’s clear that passion runs beyond the bottle and extends to growing the global recognition of Sussex (now PDO, don’t you know…) as a world class sparkling wine production area.
On the subject of world class, Rathfinny are certainly helping to lead the way. Their juxtaposing though strangely seamless and intelligent blend of low-intervention philosophies with unrivalled modern winery technology is astounding. The family and human values held by the estate are refreshing (and inspirational for a young business like ours, aspiring to do good by the world) and the juice speaks for itself. Rathfinny exclusively produce estate grown wines from single vintages in the South Downs, just 3 miles from the English Channel.
Romantic dinner... This is a luxurious wine for a lavish occasion.
This is a savoury wine which is a dream for umami based dishes. Think sticky hoisin sauce over crispy duck, barbecue pork buns or indulgent, meaty mushroom dishes. Also outstanding with rib-eye steak, believe us...
