Description

VITICULTURE

Planted between 2012 and 2018, Oxney’s 14 hectares of vines are located on a warm, sheltered site six miles from the English Channel and 17 metres above sea level. Vines are planted on a gentle southwest-facing slope, which maximises sun exposure and aids ripening. An adjoining ancient oak forest provides natural wind protection, helping to create excellent conditions for growing high-quality organic grapes. Four varieties are planted – Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Seyval Blanc. The soil is Tunbridge Wells sand – a fine sand and silt loam – above clay bedrock.

WINEMAKING
All grapes are picked by hand and transported to our winery next to the vineyard. Each parcel is whole bunch pressed and fermented separately with all the wines also going through malolactic fermentation (MLF). The Estate blend is a blend of different parcels across the estate, combined with reserve wines aged in both tank and Burgundy barrels to create a consistent NV style. After blending the Estate is bottled for secondary fermentation, after which it is aged on lees, and finally spent three months on cork prior to release. The dosage added is 9g/l.
OAK TREATMENT
No.
TASTING NOTE
Beautiful pale rosé, with delicate flavours of wild strawberry, redcurrant and red apple. Enjoy as an aperitif or with shellfish, fish or chicken dishes.
‍FOOD MATCHING
Delicate pink in colour with a concentrated strawberry and redcurrant nose from the Pinot Noir grapes in the blend. The 2019 summer gave us creamy red fruit on the palate but still with refreshing English acidity which will have you reaching for another glass. Ideal on it’s own or with light fish, seafood and salads.
