A fabulous sparkling Blanc de Noirs with great depth of flavour. The colour is lemon gold with a fine stream of tiny bubbles. Floral aromas of white iris & peony marry stone fruit and cherry on the nose with the mildest touch of vanilla and hazelnut. The palate is fruit-driven with yellow peach, ripe quince and notes of medlar apple. It has exceptional balance and a persistent mousse with lingering citrus flavours alongside a lovely nutty, pistachio and almond finish.
Excellent served chilled with seafood crustaceans such as Dublin Bay prawns, langoustines or lobster. Also good with tuna or swordfish. Try it with monkfish wrapped in parma ham. Pairs well with cold meats and mild charcuterie or terrines such as chicken and rabbit terrine. Perfect with beef carpaccio..
This English sparkling wine is made entirely from the red grapes Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. It is rich, light, vivacious and incredibly fruity. After hand-picking, the grapes were whole bunched pressed to obtain the finest juice. Tirage took place after 9 months. The wine was left on its lees for at least 18 months, with a further 2 months in the bottle after dosage.
88% Pinot Noir, 12% Pinot Meunier
