Product description +
Fitz Pink is the release from Fitz and the natural progression of the range. Having successfully launched the White Brut they wanted to offer more choice for consumers and a sparkling wine with light red fruit characteristics. You will notice we use the word Pink not Rosé to describe the wine, after all, it is an English wine!
Colour wise the wine has an intense pink hue akin to Laurent Perrier’s Rosé offering. On the nose the wine has a luscious confected strawberry aroma with some floral notes. On the palate the wine is dry and full of wild strawberry, redcurrant and rhubarb flavours. The wine has a fine and persistent mousse and far greater depth and complexity then other Charmat method wines. It has great balance and a clean crisp finish with good length.
Fitz Pink is best paired with either a rich smooth chicken liver paté or if you're looking for something sweeter a traditional cream tea is a perfect match.

"Who wants to be King...."
Fitz is short for Fitzroy (from the French fils-du-roi), a name once given to illegitmate offspring of the king in Norman times. Someone with quality parentage and the same DNA, who doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the family.
Fitz is a re-interpretation of what a Sparkling Wine made in England from English grapes can be. Its different from all the rest as they are the first to produce English sparkling wine using the Charmat method of production.
Charmat is a method commonly used in sparkling wines from Italy for example and offers a different taste profile to the biscuity, yeasty and dry taste of a French Champagne or classic English Sparkling Wine. Our production techniques give the wine a fresher, more approachable, fruit driven style. The intention is to offer an easy-drinking wine to be enjoyed for all occasions.
Why the Charmat method....
Fitz is the first English wine producer to create a Charmat method sparkling wine. This production method is most commonly associated with the popular Italian sparkling wine, Prosecco. The method involves the use of stainless steel tanks to house our secondary fermentation and allows us to produce a fruit driven sparkling wine that offers consumers a different style of wine focused far more on being fresh, affordable and fun whilst still retaining a focus on high quality and a premium feel.
With most producers looking to Champagne for inspiration often you will find English sparkling wine is almost exactly the same or closely comparable in terms of style and price. Fitz offers a unique opportunity to have an English sparkling wine on the list but bridge the price point between Champagne and Prosecco offering restaurants and bars a product that can appeal to a wider range of consumers.
With English wine going from strength to strength and production growing, our goal is to be able to provide consumers and sellers choice and allow a larger number of wine drinkers the chance to explore the category without the restraint and barrier of pricing. The brand is focused on creating an inclusive feel so that all consumers are comfortable ordering a glass of Fitz either with a meal, at the bar or on the internet.
