LATEST SPARKLING WINE REVIEWS
This is classic Blanc de Blancs territory – baked apple, hints of pear and peach on the nose as well as an indulgent biscuity pastry note.
A fusion of tangy red berries, orange and lemon citrus with enveloping, peachy generosity that leads to a mineral finish.
Bright with striking minerality, but rounded by a silky soft mousse and ripe fruit
LATEST STILL WINE REVIEWS
Quite simply the juiciest, ripest, most textural English Chardonnay there is.
Brisk, bold but subtly tempered acidity integrates nicely with rich peachy and apricot flavours.
Crispness explodes on the palate with a burst of lime and pungent tropical fruits.
