A Sparkling Winter Mix

Back again by popular demand is our Sparkling Winter Mix Case and again it includes 2 bottles of the fabulous Herbert Hall Brut, English sparkling wine.

Herbert Hall is a ‘Traditional Method’ (as champagne is made) sparkling wine. It is made from low-yield chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier grown organically at the Marden Vineyard in Kent.

On release Herbert Hall was described by the leading wine writer Matthew Jukes as “the finest debut English Sparkling Wine I have ever tasted“.

Herbert Hall Brut is a Chardonnay dominated blend. It is pale straw in colour and has a light floral nose with the slightest hint of autolytic (creamy) character. On the palate it shows great intensity of pure fruit.

Also included in the Sparkling Winter Mix Case, are 4 bottles of our award winning 2011 Cuvee Prestige, 3 bottles of our neignhours winning 2014 Sablonnet and 3 bottles of our 2014 Blanc Sec Exceptionnel.

This combination of wines is designed to cover all your Christmas needs, and we can recommend the following wine / food matching combinations.  Sparkling wines always work very nicely as an aperitif, and in France they are often drunk as a digestif as well.  Our Prestige will be perfect with your Christmas turkey and all the trimmings, the Sablonnet will be wonderful for boxing day cold meats and curries, and the Blanc Sec  Exceptionnel will be great with starters and any fish, and in particular those difficult  creamy dishes.
