LATEST SPARKLING WINE REVIEWS
Ridgeview Blanc de Noirs 2015
The perfect melding of the crunchy, fruit-forward styles and the more complex, savoury styles of Blanc de Noirs.
Dunesforde Blanc de Noir 2018
A modern, clean expression of Blanc de Noirs, with a suggestion of creaminess and a peachy generosity.
Furleigh Blanc de Noirs 2015
Superbly structured, beginning with brisk, crisp acidity before giving way to creamy stone fruit and biscuity layers.
LATEST STILL WINE REVIEWS
Gutter & Stars ‘Hope is a Good Swimmer’ Pinot Noir 2020
Crunchy red fruit bursting with freshness, but there’s also a nice bit of grip and suggestion of savoury undergrowth.
Dalwood Vineyard Still White Wine 2020
A fresh, crisp and deliciously fruity white blend from Dalwood in Devon.
Artelium Chardonnay Twenty Twenty
Brisk, crisp acidity and crunchy orchard fruit flavours, with the zing of tangy pineapple and rounder white peach flavours.
