Our favourite and the longest standing English wine producer in our range. Founded in 2006, the charming Husband & wife team of Wendy & Charles Outhwaite create exceptional sparkling wines in the village of Nutbourne, West Sussex.
The family run vineyard sits on sunny south-facing slopes overlooking the South Downs. West Sussex is blessed with rare free-draining greensand – excellent for viticulture in a country renowned for the occasional rain shower. The underlying greensand rock stores heat from the sun and reflects it to help ripen the grapes.
The Ambriel Rosé 2018 is mainly a single clone (777) of Pinot Noir (98%) with a (2%) twinkle of Pinot Meunier. Its a skin contact Rosé with great texture and a weightier palate. 2018 was a fabulous year and the vines were at their optimal peak. This Rosé is sufficiently weighty to pair with lamb, charcuterie and lobster (although best not at the same time). Delicious!
