Since the last 15 years, English winemakers have made a huge improvement to the quality of their sparkling wines. They shouldn’t be shy being compared to Champagne wine nowadays, as they are made with the same method, grapes (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) and identical soils as in Champagne. Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed.
Comprised of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, this wine has all the hallmarks of a fine sparkling wine. The subtle fruit on the nose, red berries from the Pinot and citrus from the Chardonnay, is harnessed up by a long, textured palate that remains and satisfies. "Albury Estate Classic Cuvee has all the hallmarks of a fine sparkling wine". Stephen Skelton MW
Really individual English style in the best possible way. Characteristic aromas of wild strawberries and raspberries , very well balanced with a pure, refreshing finish. Mouth-watering and award-winning 100% Pinot Noir sparkler from Cornwall.
"A triumph, it’s completely delicious – like a wild cherry blossom nose-kiss” – Victoria Moore
"Beautifully pale, delicate salmon-peach colour; lovely, delicately rich fruit. Sublime.” – Tom Stevenson
This latest release of the Buckinghamshire-based winery.
Blended from the classic grape varieties, led by the pure fruit and texture of Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier and well supported by the finesse of Chardonnay. The 4th Edition bottling is based on the excellent year of 2015, supported with 30% 2014 reserves, aged in old oak barriques. 2015 was a truly great year for Pinot Noir and this very much shines through in the blend. The reserves really help to soften this wine and add extra complexity which makes it quite compelling on release.
