An elegant white sparkling wine with crystalline features. Beautiful pale lemon with lots of tiny bubbles. It has attractive floral aromas of acacia, elderflower and citrus blossom along with Sicilian lemons and chalky minerality. The palate is crisp, dry and exceedingly refreshing with flavours of freshly squeezed lemons, grapefruit, lemongrass and salty minerality on the finish. It shows very pure varietal expression with exquisitely refined structure and definite poise.
Perfect for celebrations, serve well-chilled as an aperitif alongside shellfish canapés such as oysters, mussels or cockles. Great with flat fish such as lemon sole véronique, turbot, brill or dabs. Also good with fresh ricotta and goats cheese, or asparagus tips dipped in lemon butter or hollandaise.
This English sparkling wine is made entirely from the Chardonnay grape. It is an elegant, floral and exceedingly refreshing wine. After hand-picking, the grapes were whole bunched pressed to obtain the finest juice. Tirage took place after months. The wine was left on its lees for at least months, with a further months in the bottle after dosage.
