The epitome of an English rose - delicate and feminine. If you enjoy a non-vintage Rosé Champagne, then this is the sparkling wine for you. Chapel Down English Rose NV is an elegant blend of four classic grape varieties.
Redcurrant, citrus and slightly toasted on the nose. Strawberry, blackcurrant and rosehip on the palate. Rounded and fresh.
English Rose NV is great as an aperitif or with canapes. Alternatively, pair with summer fruit pudding.
