Balfour Brut Rose 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Balfour Brut Rosé is a limited-edition English pink sparkling wine with only 22,000 bottles of the 2006 Vintage. It is grown exclusively on the enchanting Hush Heath Estate in deepest Kent, from three classic Champagne varieties - Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier - with the same rigorous controls as top quality Champagnes. In 2008, the 2004 vintage won a Gold Medal in the IWC competing alongside the best French Sparkling Roses. In the glass a delicate wild salmon pink, exceptionally fine bubbles and prolonged mousse. The nose is clean with a subtle suggestion of brioche and summer fruits. Crisp, mouth-watering acidity with complex red berry fruit - redcurrant and strawberry - with hints of shortbread, cucumber and dried spice on the palate carry through to a refreshing, lingering finish.

Paying great attention to soil type, climate, row sizes, ripping, water quality, varieties and cloning attracted the immediate attention of Penfolds who contracted the fruit from his premium vineyard for a number of years. The purchase of the Vineyard was the start of a journey that culminated with the formation of Heath Wines in 1998. Read less
