Tasting: UK Sparkling

Quite rich stone fruit character plus a flash of juniper bitterness – interesting and characterful. Nice flinty touch, and smooth fizz kept fresh by fine acid. Convincing.

Tasting: UK Sparkling

A rich yellow gold. Bubbles rise gently for several minutes.Impressive, ripe, full-flavoured style. Lots of bold, sweet fruit flavours – really ripe and almost tropical.Lovely length and balance. A style to drink relatively soon as it lacks the acidity to age for long

Tasting: UK Sparkling

Very firm, yeasty notes on the nose. Ripe 2009 fruity style, with excellent acidity and lovely long finish. Acid in great balance and citrus character shines through. Still fresh and should last well.
