About the winery
At Rathfinny we produce four vintage, traditional method, world-class sparkling wines – Blanc de Noirs, Blanc de Blancs, Rosé and Classic Cuvée. Our low-intervention, Traditional Method, Vintage Sussex Sparkling wines are a true expression of our terroir. Produced from hand-harvested grapes that are whole-bunch pressed and patiently matured, on lees and in bottle to develop rich, autolytic notes, with a low dosage that emphasises the purity of our fruit. We aim to preserve the wonderful natural flavours of the grapes with as little intervention as possible. Traditional winemaking processes are under the careful control of our Head Winemaker, Jonathan Médard. The secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle, after which it is left to age on the yeast lees for a minimum of 15 months to develop wonderful autolytic notes. On occasion, some fermentation and/or ageing takes place in oak barrels to develop even more complexity.
