Decanter Magazine, 'Top five UK sparkling rosé wines'

Pale peach colour. Ripe and musky with a great concentration of aromas. Fresh palate of sour cherry. Generous and rich, delightful now and will age nicely. 91 Points

Armit Wines

A lovely, frothy sparkling rosé from Digby Fine English, this is an elegant tipple with a charming story behind it. Being great fans of the Regattas at Henley-on-Thames, the proprietors of Digby Fine English wanted to create a wine in homage to the tradition of the great English Regatta, and to the historic Leander rowing club. Proceeds from the sale of each bottle go to supporting programs for young rowers at Leander Club, where it is the official sparkling wine. Happily, they often have much to celebrate.

Beautiful pale coral colour, frothy mousse, and delicate bubbles on the palate, this wine embodies summer folly and toasts on the banks of the Thames. Forthright strawberry notes on the nose and palate, aromas of roses, and a touch of cream on the finish. Absolutely delicious as an aperitif, and as it is ever so slightly off-dry this wine could also be paired with light fruit puddings or simply served on its own to wind down an evening.

Producer

Digby was launched in 2013 and gained instant global recognition by winning the best English sparkling wine with their 2009 Brut Reserve in the 2014 Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships. Determined to produce wines that are distinctively English in character, the experienced team at Digby have built long-term relationships with the best vineyards across English wine country (typically in Kent, Sussex and Hampshire). This diversity allows Digby, with one of England’s most celebrated winemakers Dermot Sugure at the helm, to produce a sparkling wine with a hallmark richness of flavour and texture focusing on Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.

Inspired by the extraordinary life of the 17th Century philosopher, theologian, writer, pirate, inventor and ‘father of the modern wine bottle’, Sir Kenelm Digby, ‘Digby Fine English’ are wines of distinctively English character.
