We thought it was our duty to check out some of Sussex’s hero wines and do a little taste test…

Nutbourne Vineyards Sussex reserve 2013 £10.80
A very close second, this blend of Bacchus, Huxelrebe and Reichensteiner grapes produces a crips, elderflowery dry white. Perfect for summer.

Oxney Organic Estate English Rosé 2014
We loved this easy-drinking pink wine, and we loved that it was organic.

Highdown Estate ‘Millers Reserve’ Rosé
By no means a loser, this is a deep vibrant rose with a full flavour, made from Dornfelder, Rondo, and Pinot Noir grapes.
