From one of the best vintages of the decade, Rathfinny Estate Classic Cuvée 2018 is a blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier with stainless steel tank fermentation and 30 months lees-ageing in the bottle before release. In the glass this wine shows a radiant golden hue with a fresh nose of  red fruits, spiced ginger and cinnamon. The palate is rich and immediately inviting with white apricot, almond’s and crème pâtissière with nuances of honeydew melon and toast on the finish. Rathfinny Estate Classic Cuvée 2018 is a brilliant third release from one of Sussex’s top English Sparkling Wine producers. A versatile, food-friendly Sparkling that will pair well with cod and chips or simply enjoyed on it’s own!

“This is all about purity of fruit, with notes of red berries and red apple, almost autumnal, but fresh and elegant at the same time. It’s a rounded and gentle wine that would be a great partner for fish and chips.” – 92 Pts, Decanter  

Established in 2010 by Mark and Sarah Driver, Rathfinny Estate is a family-owned estate with over 93 hectares of vines planted on south-facing, mineral rich soils. With 100% estate grown grapes, Rathfinny have planted predominately Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier vines, with a small quantity of Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris for still wine production. With the ideal micro-climate, cool-costal influences and free-draining chalk soils, the estate have set their sights high for producing exceptional English Sparkling wine to rival the very best.
