Review and Tasting
Sampled on 01/06/2016
(sample bottle No. 0074 of 4117) Clear, pale golden with lazy fine bubbles.
Biscuity and toasty with lemon freshness. Faint redcurrant and raspberry.
Crisp, toasty and fruity with great balance and finesse. Cleansing lemon/white grapefruit zestiness with faint succulent pear.
Cleansing finish with lingering biscuit and citrusy acidity.
An English sparkling wine to challenge some of the best champagnes. Balanced and very fresh with biscuity and toasty notes enlivened by cleansing citrus acidity. Light and balanced rather than deep and complex – it will be interesting to see how this cellar ages.
