We were excited to discover this new sparkler from England, and even more excited when we tasted it! English wines are still incredibly rare in the American market, but they are becoming increasingly sought after. England has a similarly cool climate to Champagne, along with the same chalky soils - allowing intrepid winemakers to craft delicious, crisp sparkling wines. This bottle features flavors of tart green apple, pear, lemon peel, and buttered toast, followed by a clean finish tinged with hints of almond. If you’ve never had an English wine, this is your chance to see what the fuss is all about.

"The blend is 54% Seyval Blanc, 34% Pinot Noir, 8% Chardonnay and 4% Pinot Blanc, and the result is nothing short of world class. We would encourage you to blind taste with your Champagne–loving friends... This delicious sparkling wine will enhance seafood, cheeses and light fruit based desserts." ~Denbies

The 2014 grapes were hand-harvested under excellent conditions after a superb growing season. Whole bunch pressed and fermented in stainless steel and then bottle fermented. Residual sugar is 8g/ml. The blend is 54% Seyval Blanc, 34% Pinot Noir, 8% Chardonnay and 4% Pinot Blanc, and the result is nothing short of world class. The vines are dry farmed [no irrigation], and low yielding, with under 20HL/Ha. This is far less than most Champagne producers, and attests to the superb quality of this wine. We would encourage you to blind taste with your Champagne–loving friends. The vineyards are south-facing, and in a protected valley, allowing for optimum heat and sun exposure. The vineyard plots are 50-120m above sea-level, and the rich topsoil is composed of loam and flint, supported by a calcium rich subsoil. Drink now-2020. This delicious sparkling wine will enhance seafood, cheeses and light fruit based desserts.
