Rathfinny Reserved 2018 Mixed Case Tasting Notes

2018 Blanc de Noirs: Meadow-honey in hue, heralding a nuanced nose of almond blossom and violets, a perfumed mousse of sweet cherries and quince with a lingering, damson finish.

2018 Blanc de Blancs: Crystalline cornsilk in colour, with a vivid nose of lemon verbena and fresh Williams pear that gives way to a delicate, lime-sherbet beading and a creamy mango finish.

Praise for Rathfinny’s Blanc de Noirs and Blanc de Blancs

These two vintage wines have been met with critical acclaim and are true reflection of our Sussex terroir. Will Lyons (Sunday Times wine columnist) described the Rathfinny 2016 Blanc de Noirs wine as: “Decadent and World Class,” whilst Jamie Goode (WineAnorak.com) called our Blanc de Blancs: “One of England’s finest.”

Co-Owner of Rathfinny, Mark Driver states, “These wines are a superb reflection of Rathfinny’s incredible terroir and 2018 proved to be an exceptional vintage for us. One of the inevitable challenges of operating a premium wine business, in which we only bottle wines from grapes we have grown on our Estate, is satisfying demand. We have therefore created Rathfinny Reserved to enable fans of our wines to reserve cases of our future releases.”

Co-owner, Sarah Driver suggest, “If you have a big event coming up in 2022/3, such as a wedding, anniversary or a significant birthday, this is a great way to ensure that you and your guests can celebrate with our premium Sussex Sparkling wines.”

Our 2018 Blanc de Blancs is a blend of predominantly Burgundy clones of Chardonnay which we hand-harvested and gently pressed. The wine is fermented at a cool 16oC and once blended, will spend 36 months in the bottle before being disgorged and released in summer 2022.

2018 Blanc de Noirs Blend

Our 2018 Blanc de Noirs is a blend of 88% Pinot Noir, selected from predominately Burgundian clones which bring a richness of fruit character and 12% Pinot Meunier. The grapes are hand-harvested and the juice is gently pressed from the skins, leaving a rose-gold glow in the wine. Fermented at a cool 16oC, after blending, the wine will spend 36 months in the bottle, before being disgorged and released in summer 2022.
