Hampshire Wines

English wines are enjoying a surge in popularity at the moment, with sparkling wines riding the crest of the wave. The vineyards of Hampshire, situated on the South Downs, sit on the same swathe of chalk soils as Champagne. The cool climate is essential for retaining the acidity in grapes required to make sparkling wines. Light, acidic wines are the base of the best sparkling wines as they allow for the addition of sugar to start a second fermentation in bottle without the wine becoming too sweet. The majority of the sparkling wines produced here are a blend of the classic Champagne grapes Pinot Noir, Pinot Menuier and Chardonnay, often aged for long periods in bottle to soften the natural acidity and verve of these stunning wines.

    Rude Wines have loads of lovely stuff - the trouble is the Cottonworth Sparkling Rose from Hampshire is so delicious they have to prise the bottle from my hands to force me to try other stuff!Oz Clarke, The Three Wine Men

    Wow - very fruity! Incredible strawberry and cherry fruit, the like of which I’ve never tasted - still less in an English wine! This is thanks to the use of Pinot Précoce, apparently. So bright and ripe. Hard to say if it’s typically English, but I do love its boldness. 17/20 Richard Hemming MW, jancisrobinson.com Read More.
