Breaky Bottom

Richard Hemming

Tasting: UK Sparkling

Not quite as pure as it could be. Needs a bit more concentration too. Chewy texture but ultimately quite simple. Second bottle: much fresher and cleaner, though still simplistic. Enjoyable enough, but probably needs to work harder to compete with the rest of the world’s sparkling wines.

Justin Howard-Sneyd

Tasting: UK Sparkling

Mid yellow gold. Nice persistant mousse. Rich, quite complex, and well balanced, with fresh acidity well supported by gentle fruit salad, and softening dosage

Stephen Skelton

Tasting: UK Sparkling

Some yeast on the nose. Palate full with good flavours. A touch one-dimensional, but ripe acidity, length and balanced with just the right amount of dosage.
