Sparkling wine takes a lot of the credit for the increasing positive reputation of wine in the UK. A few examples of pink fizz hit the press, but there are quite a number of excellent examples.
As with other UK sparkling wines, these are all made using the traditional method with a second in-bottle fermentation. Most use a combination of the classic champagne varieties chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier grapes, just leaving the skin contact long enough to impart colour.
We looked at recent UKVA award winners as well as major international awards and did a quick survey of people who know what they are talking about in the world of English & Welsh wines and asked them to recommend good sparkling rosé wines from the UK. Those with a cellar door open to the public are as shown below.
