Celebrating the Vintage of the Decade

Coinciding with the release of our new 2018 Classic Cuvée, we’re delighted to announce we are bringing our Sussex Sparkling wine to Selfridges. Our partnership with the iconic store on London’s Oxford Street will see Rathfinny proudly displayed in their Wine Shop on the lower ground floor. Our Brand Ambassadors will be on hand for in-store sampling on 11th & 12th March and 1st & 8th April.

We are extremely excited to launch our 2018 Classic Cuvée and Rosé at Selfridges, two wines from a year that has widely been considered the vintage of the decade. If you cast your mind back to the 2018 summer, you may remember the mini April heatwave, followed by record-breaking temperatures during July and August and refreshing September rainfall. By October, we were able to pick extremely clean fruit with an ideal balance of sugars and acidity for our Sussex Sparkling wines.

Classic Cuvée

The 2018 Classic Cuvée is presenting itself as a truly versatile wine that showcases our house-style. This vintage pairs perfectly with a breadth of foods, from the fresh flavours of a home-cooked linguini, right through to duck prosciutto and ham hock terrine.

Rosé Brut

Patiently aged for 24 months on lees and in the bottle, our 2018 Rosé is the fourth vintage of our expressive Sussex Sparkling, with a red-fruit style that beautifully showcases the increased presence of Pinot Noir within the blend.
