Jenkyn Place releases Rosé 2014
Jenkyn Place vineyard in Hampshire has released a Jenkyn Place Rosé 2014, to join its recently launched Brut Classic.
The newcomer, which is produced by winemaker Dermot Sugrue, is a blend of 52% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay and 16% Pinot Meunier.
The wines, which come in gift boxes, will be priced at £35 for the off-trade.
Owner, Simon Bladon, said: “This is the third Rosé that we have produced, as it will only be made when the Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes are of exceptional quality. 2014 was a fantastic year for winemaking in England, producing light bodied wines with great ageing potential, and we have very high hopes for this wine.”
Jenkyn Place is run by Bladon and his daughter Camilla. The first vines were planted in 2004, and the vineyard now covers 12 acres.
