Woodchester Valley Reserve Cuvée 2017

Wine Type:


A new vintage of this well-made, well-judged sparkling blend of 49% Pinot Noir, 36% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier is something to celebrate. It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Woodchester Valley’s still wines. However, I think this is their best sparkling release to date.

This is a very pretty expression of sparkling wine; the nose is practically perfumed, with white peach, sweet pear and blossom notes, lifted by warm brioche aromas.

To taste, again it’s the ripe fruit at the forefront with an orchard fruit fusion of ripe red apple, and generous peachiness. This is both refreshing and generous, with a light seasoning of biscuity complexity.
