Tasting: UK Sparkling

Characterful, fleshy and balanced – but finishes quicker than expected. Just a hint of emergent toasty autolysis which might be worth waiting a few more years for.

Tasting: UK Sparkling

Attractive yellow gold. Big, full flavoured nose. Very ripe on the palate, with quite a high level of dosage.. Bready, with apricot and peach fruit, but quite light on the acidity, which means it is not a wine to age for long

Tasting: UK Sparkling

Good yeasty notes on the nose with great balanced acidity on the finish. Nice complexity and multi-layered fruit on the palate. Finish is very full and well balanced with good ripe acidity shining through. Excellent!
