Description

Rathfinny Estate in East Sussex was founded in 2010 by husband and wife, Mark and Sarah Driver. Once a working arable farm, the first vines were planted in 2012 and today Rathfinny comprises of over 200 acres of predominantly Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Located in the South Downs National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty in Southern England, the Rathfinny vineyard is perfect for growing sparkling wine grapes: The light, thin, clay loam soils over chalk are free draining and very similar to the Champagne region of France.

Rathfinny Blanc de Blancs 2017 is the second vintage of the popular Sussex Sparkling wine, produced from a blend of predominately Burgundy clones of Chardonnay, which are hand-harvested and the wine is aged for 36 months in the bottle.

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.
