LATEST SPARKLING WINE REVIEWS
A very pure, dry expression of Bacchus but with the added lift of the light bubbles.
WOTM May 2019 A celebration of English Chardonnay purity, and it comes with such welcoming texture and complexity.
WOTM April 2019 A little nervy; tangy apple and vibrant citrus, but it integrates so brilliantly with the supple mousse.
LATEST STILL WINE REVIEWS
Lots of character for a light wine, with pleasing floral and mineral notes on the finish.
A punchy palate, packed full of zingy citrus fruit, with papaya and guava tropics.
A superbly balanced Pinot Noir from Hush Heath, with youthful red berry flavours and delicate textures.
