The Rondo grapes from Knightor’s Seaton vineyard were wonderfully ripe in 2018. A red was made at first, but shortly after they had an idea to try making it in to a sparkling red due to its very fruit-forward nature. This wine was bottled and allowed to go through secondary fermentation inside bottle, after which it was aged for a minimum of 9 months, disgorged and aged on cork for a minimum of 6 months before release. This wine is dark garnet in colour, young and lively showing a steady stream of bubbles. Aromas are fruit-forward showing blackberry, cherry and blackcurrant. The palate is lively, with pronounced fruit and a balanced medium sweet finish. A carefree fun wine that does not take itself too seriously – the joker in Knightor’s wine range! Knightor make premium quality, limited production English wines from grapes grown in English vineyards and their own vines at Portscatho and Seaton on the south Cornish coast.
