Out of the five wines I tried at Bluebell, this one just reached out and grabbed my attention.
Beautiful rich golden colour in the glass, this has a fuller nose than the 2011, with baked apple, stone fruit, lemon and hints of almond.
Palate has a complex nuttiness, it’s dry but there’s this profound fruity streak of tangy apple running through everything. Really vibrant, lots of citrus and then hints of honey and pastry – it’s absolutely delicious!
At £24/bottle it may be the best value English BdB I’ve had so far.
