Wonderful pink hues, darker in colour than some with suitably vivacious streams of persistent bubbles.
A rich nose full of ripe strawberry and cherry aromas with a twist of vanilla spice and sweet brioche notes.
With the latest vintage, Greyfriars added a small amount of Pinot Meunier in with the Pinot Noir, which I feel adds an extra depth to the wine. Fresh tingling citrus with red currant and cherry flavours up front.
A third of the wine was fermented in oak, which brings a wonderful rounded texture and weight to what would otherwise be a very fresh wine. The hints of spice on the finish make this a hugely enjoyable bottle, and it’s also exceptional value at just £21 direct from the winery!
