Hattingley Valley

Classic Reserve English Sparkling Pinot Noir Blend

I was on set for several rather emotionally and physically grueling action packed shooting so I deserved a little treat and by little treat mean a bottle of bubbles (and a session of smushing my face into my cat). This British bubbly is rich (riper than I’d imagine from that extra-cool climate) but also refreshing and zingy—beyond all the oxidative appley nutty notes is a punch of sweet citrus that is quite beguiling. A touch of quality white bread on the nose too. It keeps giving. — 20 hours ago

These are really decent for the price…

Bloomsbury Sparkling White Blend 2020

Proper fizz that. Much softer bubbles than prosecco, gorgeous Amber colour with peachy taste. Quaffed it up in the sun with Carol and Andy and The Meal. Good choice, especially on offer at £20 Waitrose (normally £27). — 3 years ago

Every vintage I’m more and more impressed with British sparkling wine. Lemon meringue, yellow apple, brioche. — 9 days ago

Wiston Estate Winery

South Downs Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay

Frothy mousse, pale gold. Dry with 8g/litre. Young and still quite primary with a slightly sharp citrusy palate with heightened minerality. Very pleasant, will be interested to follow the evolution. FYI crazy tight cork that needed cork screw to release. — 3 years ago

Classic stuff, probably been brewing this same recipe for centuries. Smells & tastes like it would be heavy, but it goes down easy and is surprisingly light on its feet. Lightly malty, no frills old school Ale — 2 months ago

The nose displays a nice mix of peach, lime, strawberry, sourdough, and light chalk. Delicate fine mousses. High acidity but with a round edge. Shows a lot more Chard characters once the mousses are settled. Clean crisp finish.

This one was recommended over other more expensive vintage English bottling. Very happy with the choice.
