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.
