Brut Classic Cuvée Sparkling Blend

Quite pale straw colour . On the nose ripe lemon peel and , baked apple pastry notes. On the palate quite tart acidity , those citrus peel notes , refreshing but with decent body . There is a creaminess on the palate and on the finish the dosage is just noticeable though it balances well with the high acidity , ok length lemon pith finish . I think this would be identifiable as English Sparkling wine in a blind tasting , the style is quite classic and relatively lean with high acidity, it’s own distinct style . This is perfect to drink now , the entry level Nyetimber cuvee , and a pretty good entry level wine at that — 16 days ago

Cuvée Brut South Downs Chardonnay Blend

[“Cuvée Brut”, not found in Delectable.] Lovely, rich, toasty, biscuity brut, some bubbles but less intense than many Brut Champagnes we’ve had these past few years, very good, but I guess we’re getting spoiled!! — 5 months ago

Classic Reserve English Sparkling Wine

50% Pinot Noir 30% Chardonnay 19% Pinot Meunière and interestingly 1 % Pinot Gris. Extremely fine mousse. On the nose and palate Citrus and Granny Smith apple - very refreshing. Chalky soils. Many tasters would pick this as French in a blind tasting. The trouble is by the time this gets to Australia the price is similar to an average NV Champagne so to the average buyer the Champagne is the safe bet but make no mistake these are first class Sparklers. — a month ago

Agreed, we love the English bubbles here too, but pricing is getting closer to the first tier, good Champagne offerings.

South Downs Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay

Thanks to global warming 👍🏼

K&L notes as follows

We finally got our hands on some of Wiston’s remarkable Blanc de Blancs. This 100% Chardonnay bottling is pressed in their traditional wooden Coquard basket press, fermented and rested in neutral French oak for a year, before aging more than two years on the lees in bottle. Reserve wines range back to 2008, with the 2018 harvest making up most of this iteration. Look for aromas of white flowers, baked apple, crushed quince, pie crust, stony minerals, chalk, saline, and oyster shell notes complete this magical wine. More volume and golden ripe fruit here versus the racier other NV wines. Beautiful stuff! Limited quantity.

English bubbles are still a good QPR, but pricing has continued to rise with the demand in the last few years.
