Ashling Park’s 2014 Rosé is a confident number amongst its peers. Made from 80% Pinot Noir grapes and 20% Pinot Meunier on the family’s 50-acre estate in the hamlet of West Ashling in the South Downs.
It is a well structured, full-flavoured drop with great intensity of fruit, length and complexity.
The Ashling Park Rose is arguably a delicious tipple on its own but with the body and structure to partner many dishes, this is an extremely sophisticated and versatile English Sparkling Rosé.
The Ashling Park Cuvée Brut is also a rather special drop. Crafted from a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Meunier. It was awarded a gold medal at the 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards. The finish is rather crisp and precise with impressive balance and terrific ageing potential.
Gail Gardner of Ashling Park said “The UK is now being recognised as producing the best sparkling wines in the world, rivalling Champagne. We are also so proud to win 3 top wine trophies from WineGB 2020 and this firmly puts Ashling Park on the global stage.”
Asked what their secret is, Gail explained “It truly is a team effort. Our winemaker, the talented Dermot Sugrue once said to me, if I brought him good clean grapes, he’d make me world-class wines and that’s exactly what he did. This was made possible by our dedicated and skilful vineyard team who work tirelessly through wind, rain, hail, beating sun and even a global pandemic!” “The next part of the recipe” Gail continued …”is to not rush releasing the wines, the longer left on the lees the better the wine, our Cuvée has six years on the lees which is the longest English wine on the market.”
We think the two bottles are the perfect gift set or as a cellar stocker over the Christmas period.
