Description

The 2018 Bride Valley Rose Bella A delicious palate of red fruit… cranberry, redcurrant, raspberry… almost summer fruit pudding with real verve and freshness from balanced citrus acidity. More depth and intensity follow leading to a long, fine finish. Best vintage to date!

The Dorset estate of esteemed wine writer Steven Spurrier and his wife Bella. The vines are planted in an amphitheatre-like vineyard overlooking the village of Litton Cheney, near Bridport.
Following Steven's tests, the local geology here was found to be very similar to Champagne, perhaps rather unsurprisingly as the village of Kimmeridge is a short distance away with its geologically identical chalky soil to the Champagne region. The wines here are a real joy to drink, beautiful fruit comes off these rolling vineyards and is vinified at the neighbouring Furleigh Estate by the brilliant Ian Edwards.

Tasting Note: Wonderful appearance in the glass, deeper than in previous vintages, a beautiful salmon pink with a constant fine mousse and great energy. A lovely, attractive nose of a raspberry and redcurrant fruit character, light creamy nuances and great freshness.

..broad and structured with a nice balance of orchard fruit and the estate’s signature acidity. It feels tightly coiled, with energy and drive on the palate.” Catherine Petrie MW
