New Dorset dessert and wine pairing perfect for Indian summer
Dorset premium wine producer Furleigh Estates is a real local success story. Stocked in the Green House hotel, among other high-end venues, their range is perfect for sophisticated summer nights. And a new offering is perfect for dinner party desserts, too.
This award-winning English winery has also joined forces with cult Dorset brand Baboo Gelato, which makes its ice cream less than two miles from the Furleigh Estate vineyard, to create a sensational new ‘Sea Pink Rosé Sorbet’. The 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Rondo, ‘Sea Pink’ has a stunning crushed cranberry colour with long legs. Think summer berries including raspberry, red cherry, loganberry and a hint of rosehip, as well as fragrant peony. The palate is bursting with flavours of sun-ripened soft red fruit alongside redcurrant and cranberry with a dash of uplifting acidity – a delicate reflection of British summer in a glass.
Rebecca Hansford, who co-owns and runs Furleigh Estate with her husband Ian Edwards, said: “We’re delighted to introduce ‘Sea Pink’ just in time for the season of sunshine, sporting events and summer festivities across the UK. Succulent strawberry meets juicy pomegranate with a hint of fresh blackcurrant to deliver a fruity punch which bursts into life on the palate. ‘Sea Pink’ shows great depth of flavour, excellent vibrancy on the finish and works extremely well as the core ingredient of Baboo Gelato’s ‘Sea Pink Rosé Sorbet’.”
Baboo Gelato ‘Sea Pink Rosé Sorbet’ is available in 500ml pots with an RRP of £6 from selected farm shops across the South West.
Furleigh Estate wines, including ‘Sea Pink’ with its RRP of £10.95, can be bought from the website www.furleighestate.co.
