Winemaker Notes

Balfour Brut Rosé, "England's most exclusive pink fizz", is produced from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier grown exclusively on Hush Heath Estate. It is a multi-award winning vintage English Quality Sparkling Wine crafted using the Traditional Method made famous in Champagne.

Delicate pale copper pink with a fine, sustained bead. Very clean with hints of fresh rosehip, greengage, apple and ginger. Extremely refreshing with classic English mouth-watering acidity. Displays notes of white currant, quince, lime and a slight herbiness, typical of the Hush Heath style. The finish is long, echoing the palate beautifully.

Blend: 52% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, 8% Pinot Meunier

Wine Enthusiast
Blossom honey, a touch of melon and fresh, fragrant red-apple fruit make for an appetizing nose. On the palate these alluring flavors are joined by the generous, rounded notion of sponge cake. Towards the finish the pure freshness of bright lemon takes over, and fine bubbles offer fruit and creaminess. It's a balanced and appetizing rosé with a lasting, beautifully yeasty finish.

Hush Heath Estate, England
Our boutique, state-of-the-art winery in Kent on Hush Heath Estate was built in 2010 and allowed us to take full creative control of our wines and ciders. We have sourced bespoke wine making equipment including hand crafted, stainless steel tanks from Champagne and a bottling line from Italy.

Creating our bespoke laboratory, has allowed us to be experimental, agile, and develop enormously. Most important of all, we employed two dedicated and masterful professionals with years of experience of the winemaking process. Both Owen Elias and Victoria Ash bring richness and vibrancy to everything they create.

In the autumn, Hush Heath winery enjoys its busiest time of year and manages all of the apples and grapes from our land. None of our fruit has to travel long distances to the winery and we pride ourselves on producing a range of sparkling and still wines and ciders which are uniformly characterized by a clean, crisp, and lively personality with concentrated fruit. Our immaculate facilities, give us precise control over the winery pressing process and play an important role in this signature style

The limestone soils of England’s southern end have proven ideal for the production of sparkling wine. While it might seem too damp and cold for grape growing, recent warm summers and the onset of global warming signify great future growth for the British wine industry.

Champagne & Sparkling

View all wine

Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.

The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
