When it comes to English wine there’s a lot to shout about, not least the stunning sparkling wines from Henners. Based just 4 miles from the sea in Herstmonceux, East Sussex, the 7-acre vineyard was created in 2007 by ex-Formula One engineer, Lawrence Warr.
Boutinot was the sole distributor of Henners from this time and developed strong ties with the winery and its wines… so when the opportunity arose 10 years later to buy the estate, they jumped at the chance. Planted with traditional Champagne varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the vines thrive in an idyllic microclimate created by the vineyard’s proximity to the sea, low altitude (only 24 metres above sea level) and steep, sunny, south facing slopes.
All Henners wines are hand-crafted from start to finish; with separate fermenting of varietals and their vine clones to allow a broader range of wines for final blending; extended lees ageing for added complexity; and holding back of all bottles for at least 3 years prior to release to add depth and richness to every wine. Hand-crafted with every attention to detail, our winemakers create award winning wines of depth, complexity and elegance that are perfect for any occasion.
The Native Grace Rosé is a blend of 75% Pinot Meunier and 25% Pinot Noir with grapes chosen from selected vineyard blocks.
Grapes were hand-harvested and Pinot Meurnier grapes were loaded into the press and left to macerate overnight before being whole bunch pressed to obtain a beautiful, delicate, pink colour. The grapes were cool fermented in stainless steel, before undergoing malolactic fermentation.
Deliciously fruity Pinot Meunier provides a vibrant strawberry and cream backbone to the Native Grace Rose. Summer berry flavours take centre stage with juicy raspberry, cherry and redcurrant notes delivering a dry, zippy finish.
Served chilled on a warm summer's day or perfect with a fruity dessert such as Eton Mess.
