grape varieties:


This is a really interesting one and is believed to be the first Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc to be grown and produced in the UK.

Interesting in concept, even more interesting in character, this Sauvignon has a distinctly vegetal character on the nose. Think green asparagus or minted peas, with a mixture of grassy notes, citrus and subtle oaking.

All those savoury vegetable notes also come through on the palate.

It’s got quite a crisp citrus bite with a bit more of a fruity gooseberry character coming through on the mid-taste.
