The fruit to produce English Rosé New Hall Vineyards was whole bunch pressed. The must was cool fermented in stainless steel to retain aromatics and vibrancy of fruit flavours. English Rosé 2019 New Hall Vineyards then spent four months ageing on the fine lees, which imparted the wine with its creamy texture.
The grape vines grown at New Hall were carefully selected and have been planted at only 12 to 24 metres above sea level on well-sheltered, southern facing slopes of a shallow valley. Over the years this site has proven itself to be an almost ideal place for the growing of vines in England, producing above average crops of high quality grapes with naturally high sugars each year. The vines are grown in London clay soils of Tertiary age, with chalk, concealed below the clay deposits. The fruit was handpicked at optimum maturity.
New Hall Vineyards benefits from a very special microclimate and Purleigh, Essex, is one of the warmest and sunniest spots in the country. Piers Greenwood is a bit of a visionary, he planted his vineyard there in 1969, which makes it one of the oldest in the UK. Today New Hall Vineyard has 40 hectares under vine and one of the largest plantings of Bacchus in the UK. Winemaker Piers has won the prestigious UK Winemaker of the Year Award in 2013, 2015 and 2016 and his highly acclaimed and award-winning wines showcase English Wine at its best.13.32
