Our Classic Cuvee is a traditional bottle fermented English sparkling wine. The hints of crisp green apple and stone fruits on the palate are complemented by classic biscuit and brioche character typical of extended bottle maturation on the lees. This sparkling is everything you would expect of any superior sparkling wine; fresh, rich, rounded and full of complexity.
