This is a new English winery to us and already the wines have been flying off the shelves in our shops. Based in Mountfield, a small village in East Sussex. The wines are single estate, single vineyard wines that are all produced in small amounts & the highest quality. Aged for 4 years on their lees, only vintage wines are produced.
The 2011 Blanc de Blancs shows a beautiful luminous pale golden colour and active effervescence with a persistent release of bubbles. On the nose, at first there are powerful fresh fruit notes with notably ripe citrus fruits. A second nose has pleasant notes of white flowers and peach. On the palate supple, rounded vinosity with excellent freshness. A long and refreshing finish, with notes of nectarines and a pleasant mineral quality.
This is truly outstanding, world class fizz, that happens to come from right on our doorstep!
