- The Rathfinny Wine Estate was established in 2010 near Alfriston in the South Downs of Sussex, one of England's exceptional natural landscapes, with the express intention of producing some of the world's best sparkling wine. Renowned winemaker Jonathan Médard from Épernay, and Cameron Roucher from New Zealand manage the Estate.
The Estate occupies a perfect south-facing slope, just three miles from the sea, and its climate, chalk soils and aspect make it probably the most perfect place to produce wine in a region that is already producing some of the best, award winning English sparkling wines.

- 'Fine, lively, youthful bubbles are the unifying element between vivid briskness and mellower, only slightly autolytic fizziness. The palate is creamy and brisk at the same time, promising resonance with just a little more age. Lovely red fruit is captured and presented in pristine fashion. Lovely, animating and lively.' - Anne Krebiehl MW, The Buyer
'Star Buy. The new vintage of Rathfinny's sparkling rosé is ravishing. Medium-bright cerise with redcurrant and pear fruit, ripe but fresh, with a white pepper twist.' - Susy Atkins, The Telegraph
'This is a year younger than the other three cuvées - while the winemaking team want autolytic notes, the philosophy is that rosé should equally sing of summer. This really does. Very moreish indeed - a brilliant rose hue, with an almost exotic weight of red berry fruits.' - Amy Wislocki, Decanter
'This is really elegant and fruity with cherries and redcurrants as well as sweet pear and apple fruit. There's some nice citrus here, too, with good acidity. I kike the texture and purity here: it shows lovely elegance with a supple, delicate fruitiness.' - Jamie Goode, wineanorak.com
