Tasting Notes

Translucent saffron in colour, delivering an expressive nose of mulberry and almond blossom, a mouth-filling perlage of baked blueberry and russet pear, giving way to a lively clementine finish.

Food Pairing

This delightfully fruity style matches beautifully with intensely umami-sweet flavours delivered by steamed barbecue pork buns, crispy duck with hoisin sauce or Japanese Nimono dishes.


Often referred to as the ‘vintage of the decade’, 2018 was one of the warmest summers on record. A mini heatwave developed from April onwards, bringing on early flowering and the dry weather promoted good fruit set. New temperature records were set in July and August and despite heavy rain in early September, the weather during harvest in October was very favourable and we picked very clean fruit with an ideal balance of sugars and acidity for our Sussex sparkling wines.

“I bought a load of magnums of this wine and the 2018 Blanc de Blancs ‘en primeur’, and I have opened a good few already to rave reviews from my friends.  It is clear that 2018 is a stellar vintage in England, and this is certainly one of the wines of the vintage. While it is still bracingly youthful, I adore the energy and flair on display here.” Matthew Jukes
