WINE REVIEW

Made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, this is the lighter (just 10%) little brother of the award winning Nutty Brut. Named ‘Wild’, this is unusually a zero dosage wine, released relatively young (2013 vintage) compared to other English Fizz.

Beautiful pale salmon colour in the glass, it’s got a light nose of lemon, raspberry with mineral tones.

Vibrant acidity on the palate, bone dry but still retaining lots of red fruit flavours. It’s like a summer berry pudding without the sugar, a good citrus zest leading to dry lasting finish.

This wine really excites me; it’s super fresh, light but intense and refreshing with elegance and purity to really make it stand out. Great to see an English winery trying something different. A steal at £14.00/bottle.
