Food Pairings for Chapel Down Rosé Blend English Rose
I said divine apricot colour but reviewer above more accurate with 'delicate smoked salmon pink'. The nose is ever-so-slightly earthy on its strawberries, In the mouth those strawberries are mouthwateringly acidic in a highly well-balanced package.
At Chapel Down they source grapes from vineyards all over the South East of England, from Sussex, Kent and Essex. They believe that good winemaking starts in the vineyard, and impose the highest quality standards on their growers to deliver ripe and clean fruit. The grapes are always quality controlled when they arrive at the winery during the harvest period. Only the very best fruit will be selected to go into Chapel Down Wines. The range and variety of grapes (from Bacchus to Pinot Noir) grown on the chalk downs or Essex clays, produce unique and exiting wines that you won’t taste anywhere else. These varieties have a potential that is now truly being realised in England. As well as sourcing grapes from over 180 acres over the South East, Chapel Down also have their own Vineyard at Tenterden that extends over 25 acres. A classic grape variety in a modern style. The colour of lightly smoked salmon (an ideal partner). The wine is young, fresh and clean which isn’t as perverse as it sounds.
