This delightful English Sparkling wine is crafted from Seyval Blanc grapes in order to offer a bright, fruit forward and elegant, yet approachable wine. With a lovely pale lemon hue, aromas of lemon, green apple and freshly cut grass leap from the glass and are instantly enticing. On the palate, there is good structure and detail without overpowering the delicate crisp citrus fruit. Pronounced flavours of lemon and Granny Smith apple stand out amongst a vibrant and delicate mousse with a clean finish.

SEYVAL BLANC is the most successful of a series of French hybrid grapes developed by Bertille Seyve and Victor Villard in the mid-20th Century. A green-skinned variety, Seyval Blanc is a productive grape that ripens early in the season, making it suitable for cool climate viticulture. It has found considerable success in the United States and Canada and also England, where it is the most widely planted wine grape. It is often touted as having a flavor profile somewhere between Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Realistically it is more akin to Chardonnay with its high acidity and positive response to malolactic fermentation and barrel maturation.
