Tasting: UK Sparkling

Slightly tarnished colour. Creamy, buttery, full and expressive. Lovely pure apple fruit. Lots going on here. Good chewy texture and long finish.

Tasting: UK Sparkling

Very significantly coloured by the red grapes, this is a deep red gold. Wild strawberries predominate on the nose. Overt and rather obvious, the strawberry character is a bit cooked for me – lacks the freshness of other examples

Stephen Skelton

Tasting: UK Sparkling

Very Pinot on nose with excellent ripe fruit on the palate. Very fruity – German clones I wonder? Lacks the classic elegance of hampagne, but still a good example of UK sparkling wine.
