Highweald Brut Reserve NV

Wine Type:


My second wine from Highweald, this is their flagship sparkling Brut Reserve, a non-vintage Chardonnay-dominant blend with a decadently golden hue in the glass. For a youthful sparkling wine from a young estate, this can already go toe-to-toe with some of the country’s biggest names with its crowd-pleasing richness.

On the nose there’s ripe red apple, pear, lemon zest and peach, together with a surprising amount of pastry complexity for a wine that has spent a relatively short time (two years) on the lees.

The palate brings all the promised crunchy orchard fruit, as well as generous hints of stone fruit and cream. There are hints of spiced pastry and brioche which is a clear nod to the Champagne Grand Marque style.
