Tasting: UK Sparkling

Toasty, open and expressive on the nose. Creamy mouthfeel – really fine mousse. Very convincing – elegant and concentrated, with a fine line of acid to keep it fresh. Developing nicely, with more to come.

Tasting: UK Sparkling

Yellow gold in colour, with good bubble formationA hint of bruised apples on the nose.The palate is complex, and very nicely balanced, with a core of lemony acidity clothed in generous, soft, peach and melon fruit, and hints of baked bread.Very satisfying on the finish

Stephen Skelton

Tasting: UK Sparkling

Elegant yeast-touched nose with very full, very ,long, mouth-filling palate.Finishes very well, with extremely full, balanced acidity and fruit. Hard to get much better than this. Perhaps showing some maturity and needs drinking in next 24 months. Great example of ripe 2009 Chardonnay wine.
