2014 Classic Cuvee Sparkling, Tuffon Hall, East Anglia, England
This is yet another example of how good English Sparkling wine is now getting, and what's more it's produced just down the road from us here in Essex. It's produced following the traditional method from the three Champagne varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. A slightly shorter ageing period than Champagne makes for a fresher, fruitier style, yet there is still a sophisticated biscuit note in the background. A delicious sparkling wine that was awarded a bronze medal at the East Anglian Wine Awards.
