Located in East Sussex, this family run estate is dedicated to produce hand crafted Sparkling English Wines using traditional grape varieties and bottle fermentation. They have already won many awards at international competitions so this is one to watch!
All their wines are made with the traditional method, the same one used in Champagne, where long ageing on the lees adds to the complexity of the flavour. Recently they have also released a range of still wines. They have won numerous national and international awards including four silvers and a silver outstanding at the 2017 International Wine & Spirit Competition, three silvers at the 2017 Decanter World Wine Awards 2017 and two golds at the 2015 International Wine Challenge.
Very pale peach hue, frothy; dried cranberry, autolytic; nicely defined red fruit flavours, lively acidity balancing creamy mousse and good weight, nicely balanced, savoury finish with a lovely brioche character.
Lovely on its own or with perhaps a few canapés, some charcuterie or smoked fish.
