The layers of soil beneath our vineyard give our grapes their unique taste comparable with a Provence style pale rosé. Chilworth Manor Rosé is made from 55% Pinot Meunier and 45% Pinot Noir grapes who started their life growing on a sheltered and gentle south-facing slope adjacent to the Manor. The naturally fertile sandy loam lies on a base of clay and sandstone.
The grapes were planted in 2014 and although a first harvest was achieved in 2016, we decided to make them benefit from another full growing season before bringing our Rosé to market to ensure better quality and maturity of the wine.
The Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes were picked by hand over 3 harvesting sessions in October with the help of the local community. We were very pleased with the result and so was our winemaker!
Matthieu applied the same principle of "quality over quantity" when making the wine.
Chilworth Manor Rosé is bottled by Litmus Wines and the alcohol level is 11%
Charity has long been an important part of Chilworth Manor and it remains central to our ethos today. All of our wines will be linked to a charity. Mary's Meals aims to provide chronically hungry children with one meal every school day, encouraging education that can lift them out of poverty in later life.
Every bottle of Chilworth Manor Rosé 2017 we sell will make a contribution towards this – a daily meal for a week for a child in a Malawi school.
