Tasting Notes: Impressively full-flavoured fizz, with green apple and elderflower aromas, backed up by good yeasty depth on the palate. The full body of this rich dry yet smooth Sparkling wine displays an exceptional fresh and fruity style with a ripe peachy undertone and refreshing soft apple like acidity.
Winemaking Notes: Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, 12.5% ABV, from Essex, England
Food Pairings: This is one for an english brie, try it with Baron Bigod for a truly delectable pairing.
About the Winemaker: New Hall is one of England’s oldest and largest vineyards, established by the Greenwood family in 1969. A formative stint in Alsace has inspired the winemaker, Piers Greenwood, to produce some remarkably flavoursome, multi-layered still wines, while the sparkling wines demonstrate the suitability of these Essex slopes for classic English fizz. There are seventy-eight hectares of vines at New Hall, planted to no fewer than nineteen varieties, each selected to optimise the potential of its particular site.
