An outstanding English Sparkling Wine from Hambledon of Hampshire, England's oldest commercial vineyard.
This Chardonnay dominated Premiere Cuvee has all the marks of a very good Champagne but with classic English acidity and an intense, linear finish. Complex, expressive, rich and leesy aromas with notes of confit lemon, orange blossom and white liliy. A rich and broad palate with baked apple, white peach and ripe apricot fruit flavours evolving into notes of tarte Tatin and almond croissant. The classic English, refined, mouth-watering acidity gives great structure to the wine holding everything together. Elegant, complex and intense.
This richer wine can work well with more decadent foods such as lobster, scallops and turbot but works just as well with fish & chips or as an aperitif.
