Description

This is the perfect apéritif for a warm summer’s evening. Flint’s iconic Charmat Rosé blends the grapes of England (11 varieties matched to Flint’s Norfolk terroir) with the production method of Prosecco. The residual sugar is slightly lower than previously, at only 9g/L. This gives the wine a satisfyingly thirst-quenching finish. The colour is deep and rich, mostly from the Rondo grape. The nose is floral, the palate offers crunchy red berries and a hint of creaminess. This is utterly delightful and best enjoyed with local breads and cheeses.

About this WINE

Flint Vineyard

Flint Vineyard

Nestled in the sunny and sheltered Waveney Valley in Norfolk, Flint Vineyard is named after the stony soil on which it is planted. Its owners, husband and wife Ben and Hannah Witchell, have always had a passion for wine. In 2007 they decided to pursue this passion by leaving their jobs behind and traveling the winemaking world. On their return, Ben gained a first-class degree in Oenology and Viticulture at Plumpton College and spent three years in Beaujolais as an assistant winemaker.

Since then, they have returned to their Norfolk roots making their own wine from some of the finest sites in England. South Norfolk is one of the driest and sunniest regions, with free-draining gravel and flint soil. It is here, having studied and practiced the meticulous art of winemaking, that Ben has learnt to throw out the rule book. His wines are created in small lots blending tradition with innovation and creativity.

Norfolk

Norfolk

The self-proclaimed sunniest, driest county in England, Norfolk, benefits from being on the far eastern edge of the British Isles, protected from much of the damp Atlantic weather. As a result, both grapes and grain ripen happily here.Although less well known for its wine than more southerly counties like Sussex and Kent, Norfolk is home to a handful of wineries producing excellent sparkling and still wines. Flint Vineyard produces both, with plantings of international grapes such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and Bacchus, a variety similar to Sauvignon Blanc that thrives in damper, cooler climates. There are also an increasing number of award-winning distilleries on the flat lowlands of Norfolk, making gin, whisky and rum
