Our take on an Italian classic; our great taste award winning, English Rosé Sussex Spritzers are made from a fine rosé wine produced by Off the Line in Sussex from the Rondo grape. Rondo is well suited to our cool climate as it’s an early ripener. Its berries have a deep red flesh and the rosé wine we’ve produced is bursting with summer fruit notes and provides a vibrant base for our light and refreshing spritzer – summer in a can! To complement our English rosé we have added a touch of raspberry shrub from our friends at the Bristol Syrup Company. Then, to make it extra refreshing and thoroughly quaffable we’ve added a touch of sparkle and blended it all with crystal clear Glastonbury spring water drawn from the legendary spring beneath Glastonbury Tor – magical water, steeped in myths and heroes!
Did we mention we won a GREAT TASTE AWARD! Here are the judges tasting notes: “ A good depth of pink tonality is immediately suggestive of a rosé wine, and the nose is again soundly vinous. The raspberry on the nose is delicate, in good balance with grape notes. The palate is instantly attractive: nicely dry, with the merest hint of fruit-carrying sweetness; the acidity, thanks perhaps to the shrub, has a rounded, unaggressive complexity. The effervescence is gently refreshing. This is a well-balanced spritzer, carefully considered in terms of both taste and flavour, and would work well both as an aperitif and as an accompaniment to light dishes.
