Matthew Jukes in Part 2 of his Compendium on English Wines published in the Daily Mail Weekend Magazine on 10 September wrote:-
“You only have to look back ten or fifteen years to see that reds and rosés were as thin on the ground as they were on the palate. It’s just not sunny enough here to ripen red grapes fully, so the wines that have made this Collection are very special indeed.”
a’Becketts Rosé made this illustrious list and Matthew Jukes waxed lyrical about this wine:
“With bold strawberry-scented fruit notes, 2014 Ram’s Cliff Rosé is another worthy English rosé, so leave Provence for a moment or two and reward your palate with this fabulous wine.” Matthew Jukes Daily Mail Weekend Magazine 10 September 2016.
