Tasting Notes

Laura Evans, our resident Master of Wine

This beautiful wine is very pale straw in colour with a fine mousse from 5 years lees ageing.

It has a complex nose with very many nuances: freshly baked pastries married with pink grapefruit and apple strudel. There is a wonderful concentration of creamy fruit on the palate; yeasty, bready notes giving way to the signature long and smooth Squerryes finish.

The acidity works well with dishes prepared with a creamy sauce or freshly shucked, meaty, creamy oysters, such as a Colchester or Fal

Blanc de Blancs 2014

In the vineyard it was an easy growing year, the first since 2011, the year of our national champion. We had a good warm start, avoiding any frost damage, with successful flowering and fruit set. Good ripeness followed from a warm August and September with an early harvest completed by mid-October.
