Davenport, Limney Estate Brut 2015
Out of stock
Good vintage English sparkling wine is becoming a rarity at this price point, with larger producers “premiumising” their offerings.
Will Davenport, one of the pioneers of organic and low intervention wine, in what is still an embryonic category in the UK, has gained a reputation, and garnered numerous awards, over the past twenty years for the quality of his wines.
This organic sparkler is made in the same way as Champagne, using the same grape varieties (80% Chardonnay, 12% Pinot Noir and 8% Pinot Meunier.) It has spent almost five years on the lees, adding yeasty, biscuity depth to the still-youthful, apple, lemon and lime fruit.
It’s a great advert for the UK’s flagship wine category – and shows why Champagne houses are buying land in the south of England…
Enjoy now or keep in sensible conditions for up to five years.
