Sparkling Rose Petal wine - 5.7% - 6 x 75cl bottles - Méthode Traditionnelle
This Sparkling rose petal wine is lower in alcohol than some of our other sparklers (5.7%), and slightly sweeter.
The rose petals that go into this refreshing, zesty and sweet tasting wine are picked from the organically managed Torre Abbey gardens.
The roses are predominately selected for their aroma, and also their red, pink and purple colours, which imparts a slight pinkish blush to the wine.
We use the following roses:
Rosa 'Darcy Bussell' - an English shrub rose, upright habit with rich, crimson blooms and a fruity, citrusy scent.
Rosa Cardinal de Richelieu - crossed gallica x china type rose. Intense purple colour. highly aromatic.
Rosa 'Agatha Christie' - a vigorous climber producing lightly fragrant, double, pink flowers.
Each barrel of sparkling rose petal wine contains 30 heads of roses (well, the petals from the roses at least). It also contains over 120 fresh lemons, all hand squeezed by us.
Yarde's Sparkling Rose Petal Wine is part of our Yarde Garden range of Drinks. Key ingredients are grown by us on a small scale in Yarde's Flavour Garden or other local, wildlife-friendly gardens.
To create the perfect sparkle, we use the classic method developed in the champagne region to produce a secondary fermentation in the bottle. Each bottle is then hand turned daily for 6 weeks before disgorging to remove the sediment.
