Wraxall Vineyard Sparkling Rosé
With a hint of wild strawberry on the nose, this dry sparkling rosé is very much a local wine to us, being grown and produced in Somerset. Made in the traditional method with whole berry bunch pressing, it has a delicate mousse.
Lovely fruit flavours typical of English sparkling wine precede a long, fresh finish. Silver Award winner at the International Wine Challenge 2016.

Wraxall Vineyard lies on a beautiful warm south-facing slope situated between the Mendip and Quantock Hills in Somerset. It is the perfect location for growing a variety of grapes that capture the very essence of English Wine. Wraxall Vineyard was originally planted in 1974 and during the 1980s won the South West Vineyard of the year award. By the mid 1990s, the vineyard began to fall into disrepair. All of the original plantings - with the exception of the Madeleine Angevine - were lost. Brian Shirley and Jacky Brayton bought the vineyard in 2007 and in the next two years set about restoring the vineyard and planting new varieties. The new vines have become established and are again producing award winning wines. Wraxall Vineyard wines are now made by award winning wine maker Steve Brooksbank, whose new winery is on the other side of Wraxall Hill.View more wines from this producer...
