A chance to sample each of our non-vintage wines... to work out which of them you should buy in bulk!

Or why not give a friend A Pair? They'd make a perfect and generous present.

CLASSIC NV:

Pale straw in colour, with an intense nose of ripe orchard fruits and citrus peel, surrounded by notes of toasted and buttered patisserie.

Crunchy, bright and fresh on the palate, with apples and citrus fruit at the fore. Dissipating slowly, resulting in a long and pleasing finish.

PINK NV:

A pale onion skin crossed with white peach threaded with a persistent, fine mousse.

The nose shows ripe red berry fruits - wild strawberry and cherries - overlaid with heady summer florals all held in a soft and bready frame.  The addition of the 2015 and 2016 reserve wines bring a further layer of complexity with toasted nuts and sweet spice.

Thanks to the long lees ageing it is rich and round on the palate, with notes of raspberry, cranberry and redcurrant held in a delightful creaminess, but the fresh acidity provides the perfect balance and leads to a refreshing but persistent and luxurious finish.

We drink the CLASSIC as an aperitif and enjoy it with:

  • fine, buttery slices of iberico ham
  • rich, smoked fish
  • oysters
  • ROKA cheese crispies

Our PINK (NV) is lovely on its own but it has the complexity to go well with food too.  Try it with:

  • rich, smoked fish
  • grilled chicken
  • smooth, vegetarian risotto
  • oysters

THE CLASSIC:

"Very pale with a fine, steady mousse of small bubbles. Gorgeously alluring on the nose – fresh, citrus, light autolysis, russet apples, hint of iodine too. On the palate, smooth supple mousse with fresh, lemony white fruit, refreshingly racy but not too much and again this touch of russet which gives a depth of richness to it, saline and fresh on the finish. A great appetiser!"

THE PINK:

"Gorgeous pale onion skin pink with a fine, steady mousse. On the nose warm red berry fruit with a hint of redcurrant, creamy, leafy, with a palate of supple fruit, light red berry with fresh, racy white fruits too, a very light floral touch and again this touch of cream, mouth tinglingly fresh, juicy, with a light phenolic note and a long, refreshing finish."
