This delicate rosé is our first 100% Pinot Noir rosé wine. The majority of our Pinot Noir fruit is reserved for our sparkling wines, however the exceptional 2020 vintage gave near perfect conditions from which to produce a stunning single varietal rosé expression. The Discovery Series is a collection of limited edition wines that are available exclusively from our Chapel Down winery shop and website.

At Chapel Down, Pinot Noir is the second most important grape variety for traditional method Sparkling Wine, behind Chardonnay. The Pinot Noir grape variety makes up approximately one third of all the area under vine in the UK and constitutes 38% of the vineyard area in Champagne. Many wine regions grow Pinot Noir to use in red winemaking, but here at Chapel Down we use it exclusively for traditional method sparkling wine and, in our rosé still wines.
The majority of Chapel Down's vineyards are planted on the North Downs of Kent - the Garden of England's very own terroir with south facing chalk slopes and ideal warmer weather. However we also have other partner vineyards on clay, chalk and greensand across the Weald of Kent, a variety of terroirs which are suitable for the cultivation of exceptional quality fruit.
Using exclusively the cuvée, the best quality fraction of juice normally reserved solely for sparkling wine production, this gently handled, single varietal rosé has been produced to be low in tannins. Our finest Pinot Noir grapes were hand selected at the exceptional 2020 harvest and whole bunched pressed, before being subject to cool fermentation in stainless steel to preserve the purity and lightness of the wines flavours.
