Product of England.Quality Sparkling Wine Tasting Notes Pale gold, great clarity and tiny bubbles. Aromas of fresh melon, meyer lemon, proving bread, sweet pea flowers & vanilla. Fresh apricot and melon flavours on the palate and lovely tiny bubble texture. Apricot and bread flavours continue on the long finish. The wine has all the balance and structure needed to age for many years to come. 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 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 until the end of October. Since there was no frost damage and the fruit set was excellent, the 2009 yield was the highest ever recorded.
