Bolney Estate was planted in the early 1970s on the edge of the South Downs and is now one of England's premier wine producers. The company is still family-run, with Sam Linter, daughter of founders Janet and Rodney, heading up the winemaking team. The focus with all their wines is to create a fruit-driven, linear and very English style. We only have 12 of these award-winning magnums of Bolney Estate Cuvée Rosé Brut 2016 (£69.99), which won (deep breath) Best Overall English Sparkling, Best in Class English Vintage, Best in Class English Sparkling Wine, and the National Champion for England at the Champagne & Sparkling World Championships! But don’t only take the judges word for it - we think it’s absolutely delicious, with its raspberry ripple, red apple and toasty brioche notes, and think it would work with smoked salmon and even the turkey, so this has Christmas Day (or any festive occasion) written all over it!
