“English wine’s delicious, high quality answer to the world’s trendiest wine style”  is how Fergus Elias, our Head Winemaker, described his latest vintage of Balfour’s flagship still rosé – Nannette’s.

Inspired by our home and delicately pale to look at, this still wine blend of the traditional champagne varieties (Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay) and shows just what English rosé is capable of. Brimming with delicious summer berry and a zesty freshness, from clay Hush Heath vineyards are ideally suited to create this soft, delicate dry style – the character of the wine echoes the beautiful English summer fruit orchards which inspired it. Since its first inception in 2010, this has been one of Balfour’s sold-out stars – and its release every year is hotly anticipated.

Here’s three reasons to try our new Nannette’s Rosé now:

  • Get ahead of the curve: still rosé is English Wine’s secret weapon. Our climate is perfectly suited to these crisp dry styles, which the likes of Provence have taken by storm – and they look superb on your social media too.
  • Infinitely versatile: rosé is getting more serious, and Nannette’s is beautifully balanced making it superb with a range of foods. And it’s not just for summer.
  • Don’t miss out – every year our Nannette’s sells out, and has quickly become one of our most loved wines. It’s not to be missed.

Key tasting notes :

The chardonnay gives this wine and lovely, zippy freshness – making it feel light and dry on the palate. Whilst the Pinots add beautiful summer fruit notes, with ripe red cherry, raspberry and strawberry all tempered by an aromatic herb (in particular thyme) quality.

Technical Tasting Note

Our pairing guide :

  • Light, pale styles of rosé have delicate aromas which can be overpowered by strong flavours. The structure and depth of Nannette’s makes it a perfect companion to summer salads, light seafood dishes or soft cheeses. Or, when the weather is warmer, serve at fridge temperature and enjoy on its own (preferably from a deck chair).
