Wine of England.Quality Sparkling Wine Tasting Notes Vibrant antique red rose colour, hint of copper tones, lovely tiny bubbles. Red mango, honey, hints of star anise, cardamom and alyssum. Red liquorice, red cherry & currant flavours. High intensity, with lovely round and full but soft texture. Finish is very long and full with red currant and hints of shortcrust pastry. The monthly mean temperatures correspond precisely to the monthly averages of the last decade. As a result, the vines progressed as expected. Flowering started around the middle of June under good conditions, véraison during the last week of August, and harvest early in October. Thanks to the fine weather in August (40% less rain compared to the average) and September (30% less), the status of the grapes was good, which enabled us to pick them at their optimum ripeness, with the luxury of being able to pick fruit the end of October. Since there was no frost damage and the fruit set was excellent, the 2009 yield was the highest ever recorded.
