Description

Rathfinny 2017 Blanc de Blancs is the third vintage of elegant Sussex Sparkling, produced from Chardonnay grapes grown and hand-harvested on the Rathfinny Wine Estate. This is a limited production of only 9,333 bottles.

Rathfinny Blanc de Blancs has made a name for itself among the most discerning wine writers, with one eminent critic, Jamie Goode, naming it “One of England’s finest”. Now on its third vintage, the Rathfinny 2017 Blanc de Blancs is elegant and sophisticated, made from 100% Chardonnay and aged for 36-months on its lees.

Tasting Note A luminous, flaxen-gold hue leads to a heady nose of ripe papaya and creamy lemon balm, a refined beading of white peach and fennel pollen with a silken, yuzu zest finish.
