Located on the edge of The South Downs National Park and Ashdown Forest, Bluebell Vineyard Estates have been quietly working away on their English sparkling wine for almost a decade. Since Barry Tay started planting vines on his former pig farm in 2005, the vineyard has doubled in size and their success is apparent in their new state-of-the-art winery.
Pale lemon colour tinged with green lights, good mousse and persistent corona. On the nose, zesty citrus fruits dominating and a hint of green apple and pear. On the palate, bracing acidity providing a bright, refreshing and elegant sherbet like sharpness, This wine has undergone autolysis for 30 months resulting in a pleasant complexity.
