The Hampshire Downs lie just 80 miles north of Champagne, on the same chalk basin that curves from France to the White Cliffs of Dover and across Southern England. The sheltered vines of the Wooldings were planted at an altitude of 50-100m, on south and south-east facing slopes that gain maximum exposure to the sun in this cool climate. The soils contain a proportion of clay and flint, which retains the heat of the sun to warm the topsoil, while the chalk reflects the light back onto the vines, aiding ripeness. In addition to the 12 hectares here, there are a further 12 lying on the chalk soils of Exton Park, in the Meon Valley, South Downs, to supplement their production.
The Brut Rosé is salmon pink in colour, with aromas of cranberries, strawberries and hints of brioche. The palate is fairly full, with intense, red berry flavours that are nicely balanced by refreshing acidity and an elegant, long finish.
