“Rathfinny English sparklers rank among the best; their new release 2018 rosé is subtle and complex – look out for red apple, raspberry, red cherry, crème anglaise, orange peel and white pepper.” Susy Atkins, Stella Magazine, The Sunday Telegraph

2018 VINTAGE

Often referred to as the vintage of the decade, 2018 was one of the warmest summers on record. A mini-heatwave developed from April onwards, bringing on early flowering and the dry weather promoted good fruit set. New temperature records were set in July and August and despite heavy rain in early September, the weather during harvest in October was very favourable and we picked very clean fruit with an ideal balance of sugars and acidity for our Sussex sparkling wines.
