Grape Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
Winemaker Dermot Sugrue Alcohol 12% Bottle size 75cl
It is a chap called Sir Kenelm Digby who is credited with the invention of the cork and the modern wine bottle in the 1600s so the name is a gentle and playful reminder that the tradition of sparkling wine belongs very firmly in England. Digby is unusual in that this producer does not grow his own grapes. Each year the very best of the Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay grapes are selected from vineyards across the country and put to work in their winery. The results are English wines of true excellence.
Deliciously dry and minerally, but so refreshing. Toasty as well, or perhaps creamy, with that unmistakable brioche flavour you get when you take a sip and breathe resolutely through your nose whilst you hold the wine on your tongue – delicious. Yes, floral and strawberry hints but nothing too sweet; a full body and the flavours linger on and on.
