This is one of the best English sparklers i have tried. A bit of toast on the nose, together with lemons, red apples and a hint of yeast. Quite intense on the palate, good acidity, but not all that complex. Drinking very well now, although i'm sure it will keep. Great!
In a blind tasting, I'd have mistaken this for a chardonnay-dominated champagne. Pale lemon, medium sized bubbles and rather short of mousse, everything else is just 'a point'. Layered intense aromas of green apples, toast and citrus, followed by a just off dry, medium bodied, rich mouthfeel wine with excellent balance and racy acidity, leading to a persistent finish with lots of complexity.
