By 'eck a sparkling rosé from Yorkshire

A vineyard in Leeds has produced Yorkshire’s first sparking rosé.

The Leventhorpe winery has released Salmon Blush 2010, a wine made with Seyval Blanc, Triomphe and Pinot Noir grapes.

It is said to have a “creamy” mousse and a delicate “strawberry, brioche and biscuit” nose, with a hint of apples and honey on the palate.

“The launch of our latest wine comes at a timely end to a successful year for us all in the UK, and we can think of no better way to celebrate this year than with a lovely pink sparkling wine,” said owner and winemaker, George Bowden.
