@Delectable Wine this is the 2013 Reserve. It was not in the database. This is a nice English sparkler. Very fruit forward with younger yellow fruit. Nice bubbles. Did not appear to be too small or big in the glass. Peaches, mango, melon. Kind of herbal towards the finish. Steered away from the tropical side. Really nice and balanced. Wondering if the 89 rating is stigma driven (hint: it is). This is right in line to Champagne offerings that are a 91-92 without thinking twice. This one didn't take long to disappear. Wish I had a couple more of these, but no such luck. — a month ago
Loved this! Although I have to say it’s a reluctant Rose’. Tastes somewhere between a rose’ and a Brut. This was a shy bubbly w small to tiny active bubbles. Revealed red apples and maybe a touch of cranberry w a delicate mousse. Although flavors were subtle the flavor profile is complex. We really enjoyed this! And, British bubbles—yes!! — 11 days ago
I believe this was a 2014 base and disgorged in August or September of 2019.
Consumed over multiple days but started to get flat after day one. — 5 days ago
The juice from the Chard grapes with chard grape Brandy!? Some of the same nutty notes, nice thick body and good sweetness. — 8 days ago

A superb ale full of character.
Rich, distinctive British malt 🇬🇧 with a diverse blend of hops for vibrancy.
Paying tribute to one of my favourite UK authors - M. C. Beaton 🏴 who passed in December, 2019 by reading one her last novels.
