A rich, yet refined English sparkling wine produced in a fantastic vintage. Our Classic Cuvée is the perfect companion for life’s memorable moments.

Partial fermentation in the finest French oak casks, followed by long lees ageing for a minimum of 36 months, gives this wine additional richness, depth and complexity.

In The Vineyard
2014 is a vintage that will be looked back on fondly. Budburst was earlier than normal and the weather stayed warm and dry through to the end of June allowing a very even flowering. Some welcome rain arrived in August and it became increasingly clear that we had a large harvest on our hands. Picking started towards the end of September and ran into October with large yields of quality fruit sent to press.
Tasting notes of baked apple and citrus fruits layered with toasty richness and a hint of truffle. Perfectly paired with Oysters, mussels, scallops in lemon butter.
