- Other Info:
- Exton Park was first planted in 2003 on the South Downs - Hampshire's National Park - overlooking Exton village in the Meon valley. At first, just 12 acres were planted with the classic Champagne varieties, using different rootstocks to assess how they influenced the viticulture and final fruit. Gradually, a clear picture emerged of which best suited the terroir - and the owner's wine-making ambitions.
Now, with the full vineyard now coming to maturity, Exton Park produces non-vintage Brut Reserve, Rose and Blanc de Noirs sparkling wines, with plans in the pipeline for vintages and more single varietals. One of the first Hampshire houses to do so, thanks to the size of the vineyard, and the careful plantings according to aspect and vine characteristics.
A sparkling pale pink Rosé with a surprising depth of fruit, this wine is made by very slowly and carefully pressing 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier grapes for just the right amount of time to achieve the subtle colour. Aromas of strawberries on the nose. A rich mouthfeel showing off white peach and juicy plum from 70% Pinot Noir. Great depth and complexity.
- 'Very delicate with sappy, fine green notes on the nose. Lovely precision on the palate with cranberry, raspberry and sweet citrus. Fine. 92/100' - Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak
