“Whenever I’m thinking about wines to match with seafood my thoughts turn to vineyards by the sea. There’s something about these wines that manages to combine flavour with real freshness, sometimes even with something of the saline abut them.

One such wine is Picpoul, especially those made near the village of Pinet close to the southern French coast.

Another Option is to think pink, possible with bubbles, and I’ve got two wines that answer that description this month. One is from Hampshire and made in the same way Champagne is, the other from France and made in a similar way to Prosecco. Take your pick!

Exton Park Rosé

With vineyards on prized chalk soil in Hampshire, Exton Park has been making increasingly impressive wine in recent years. By using lots of different reserve wines (ones from older vintages) in the blend, winemaker Corinne Seely works layers of flavour into her wines. This one, make from a blend of mostly Pinot Noir with some Pinot Meunier, is a triumph. Beautiful with seafood, especially a dish like this one.”

“The first time I tasted Exton Park I was astonished. The wine has a purity, clarity, but also an intensity of flavour and uniqueness of scent I'd never come across before.”

Oz Clark - English Wine

“Exton Park and I share the same passion for quality, sustainability and local ingredients. Their winemaker, Corinne, mirrors the same level of precision and technique that I expect from the top chefs in my kitchens. This is why I selected Exton Park's Rosé for my restaurants.”

Simon Rogan - 4 Michelin Star Chef

“Peaches and strawberries in effervescent perfection. Hampshire’s greatest hit.”

Olly Smith - ITV Wine Critic

“Wines that are kaleidoscopically complex and exciting.”
