Exton Park Vineyard – Rosé NV – Bronze First Date

9th January 2018


Congratulations to Exton Park Vineyard with their Rosé NV which received a bronze medal at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly awards 2017.

A panel of 36 top industry wine judges tasted all the entries for 2017 and were able to not only scores wines with medals, but also place them in to easy to understand categories such as First Date: “A perfect wine to accompany that first date, fruity and slightly off dry to enhance that special occasion. Nothing too complex and not necessarily a wine that needs to pair with exact foods.”

This sparkling pale pink rosé with a surprising depth of fruit is an ideal aperitif, but also good with shellfish or light meats  –  as well as fine charcuterie like Lomo or Bresaola.

‘The wine displays its delicate pink colour like roses in a garden when the new buds are blossoming. After an open and enticing nose of strawberry liquorice, the wine reveals rich fruit characters in the mouth, including white peach and the rich plum flavours of the Pinot Noir. This well balanced Rose is the perfect example of the complexity of the Exton Park vineyard.’ Corinne Seely, Head Winemaker
