What is the Rathfinny 2016 Sussex Sparkling Portfolio Case?

The Rathfinny Sussex Sparkling Portfolio Case pays homage to the vintage of 2016 which produced the first complete set of our four Traditional Method sparkling wines: a Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, Rosé and Classic Cuvée. These wines all received outstanding reviews from the wine critics and are now only available in limited quantities.

When it comes to the vintage, budburst was timely, though it was very wet prior to flowering which, as a result, was slightly later than usual. However, we had a successful fruit set, despite July and the early part of August coming in cooler than normal. The second half of August brightened up with some very warm days. The dry weather continued throughout September until the end of the season. We picked in the latter part of October.

2 x Rosé 2016 

Our Rathfinny Rosé 2016 is the second vintage of our expressive Sussex Sparkling, with a red-fruit style that beautifully showcases the increased presence of Pinot Noir within the blend. Vivid coral in hue, Rathfinny Rosé 2016 has a lifted nose of wild strawberries and mandarin zest, giving way to a rich mousse of Rainier cherries and candied red apple skin, and a silky, strawberry shortcake finish.

2 x Classic Cuvée 2016

The Classic Cuvée 2016 is the first vintage of our classic Sussex Sparkling, made using the traditional method from Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay grapes. This vintage showcases a radiant lemon in hue, with an expressive nose of fresh red orchard apples, a creamy tangerine mousse punctuated by toasty notes of almond brittle, and a honeydew melon finish.

The Blanc de Noirs 2016 is the second vintage of our signature Sussex Sparkling, made from predominantly Pinot Noir grapes. With a rose-gold glow, this Pinot Noir dominated sparkling delivers an expressive nose of baked Braeburn apples, a textured mousse of morello cherries, and a refined, plum-compote finish.
