Rathfinny Debuts 2018 Blanc de Blancs Ahead of English Wine Week
The Rathfinny Blanc de Blancs 2018 on ice.
Just in time for English Wine Week, which runs from 18-26 June 2022, Rathfinny Wine Estate has launched its Blanc de Blancs from the warm 2018 vintage. Made from 100% estate-grown Chardonnay, matured on lees for 30 months and disgorged in February 2021, the wine has the house’s customary low dosage of just 3g/l.
The wine completes the Rathfinny quartet of Classic Cuvée, Rosé and Blanc de Noirs from the 2018 vintage – all of which have already been released. Sarah Driver, co-owner of Rathfinny, founded in 2010, notes that the “Chardonnay grapes benefit from our vineyard’s chalky soils and proximity to the sea.” It is for this reason that she comments: “The wine pairs so naturally with freshly sourced seafood from the British Isles”.
