At Rathfinny, every vintage produces Sussex Sparkling wine that is a true expression of the year, offering an insight into a unique year on this single site vineyard in Sussex.
Rathfinny 2018 Blanc de Noirs is the fourth vintage of this signature blend, made from predominately Pinot Noir grapes, hand-harvested and the wine is allowed to age for 30 months in the bottle.
Often referred to as the vintage of the decade, 2018 was one of the warmest summers on record. A mini heatwave developed from April onwards, bringing on early flowering and the dry weather promoted good fruit set. New temperature records were set in July and August and despite heavy rain in early September, the weather during harvest in October was very favourable: very clean fruit with an ideal balance of sugars and acidity for Rathfinny Sussex sparkling wines.
