TASTING NOTE

Our Cradle Valley Rosé 2019 is a unique blend, hand-produced from carefully selected grapes, grown on the chalky soils of our Estate in East Sussex. This still wine is ballet-slipper pink, with a nose of Honeycrisp red apples and white nougat which heralds a silky palate of rhubarb, flat peaches and creamy notes of custard-drizzled. Crystallised ginger on the finish.

FOOD MATCH

Our still Cradle Valley Rosé 2019 pairs perfectly with a Thai prawn salad, rosemary-roast chicken, or alternatively enjoyed fridge-chilled, on its own.

VINTAGE

In 2019, the growing season got off to a great start and we were hopeful for a repeat of 2018. We experienced very high temperatures during late July and a very warm August. However, it took a turn with a wet end to September and October. In the end, the fruit was sound and produced some lovely wines, despite the soggy picking conditions.

WHAT IS THE CRADLE VALLEY BRAND?

As well as producing Sussex Sparkling wines we also make a limited amount of Sussex still wine under the Cradle Valley label. Rathfinny Estate is located in the South Downs National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty in Southern England. It occupies the main part of Cradle Valley, on a south-facing slope close to the iconic Cuckmere Valley, just three miles from the sea and the famous Seven Sisters cliffs, about a half a mile south of Alfriston village.
