WINE OF THE MONTH
FURLEIGH ESTATE BLANC DE NOIRS 2014
"This youthful Blanc de Noirs impresses with its gushing, plentiful bubbles and light golden tones.
Classic Blanc de Noir character to taste; a punchy tangy red berry bite with vibrant citrus and red currant. Then, a soft and supple mid taste that brings out pronounced flavours of soft ripe stone fruit, enhanced by a slightly higher dosage (10.3g/L) than some."
LATEST SPARKLING WINE REVIEWS
Very precise with wonderful texture and great length.
An award winning rich & opulent sparkling wine from Dorset.
Vibrant fruit focussed rosé with great texture & complexity.
LATEST STILL WINE REVIEWS
Building on the beautiful layers of the Bacchus, with more vibrant grassy green notes.
A richly textured Bacchus, which has a wonderful persistent mouth hugging weight.
Punchy grapefruit and gooseberry flavours with underlying grass and elderflower notes.
