We’ve teamed up with English wine specialists, Corkk, and put together an English sparkling wine gift set for Christmas 2020. For the first time, we are giving you the opportunity to add a bottle when you buy our wine gifts. Corkk have recommended some delicious bottles of English sparkling wine and we have added two of our most popular gifts.
Firstly we picked a handprinted sparkling wine glass cloth and secondly, a brilliant stopper We handprint our glass cloths on fine linen union fabric because they need to be perfect for polishing your glasses and china. Adhoc’s sparkling wine stopper is one best we have seen. It clicks easily onto the bottle and because it clips over firmly it really does keep the bubbles in. It’s stylish, easy to use and the flat top fits easily in the fridge door.
You have a choice of two wonderful bottles of English Sparkling Wine.
Exton Park NV Rosé
This pale sparkling rosé delivers a good weight of red fruits and carries a lovely purity and elegance. Made from a blend of Pinot Noir and Meunier it has a degree of roundness and depth as well as a subtle umami character. A lovely aperitif this wine also works especially well with shellfish and charcuterie. Perfect for Christmas drinks or to accompany your starter.
Exton Park’s vineyards are in the uplands of the Meon Valley in Hampshire part of the chalkland of the South Downs.
Lyme Bay Brut Reserve
The second wine we are offering comes from the Lyme Bay Winery in the heart of Devon. The Lyme Bay Brut Reserve has a clean nose, fresh apples and fresh cobnuts come to mind, with a light bready hint. The palate is light and fresh and clean. There is a lively mousse, a citrus streak and notes of green apples. This is not a heavy wine, its joy comes in its lightness, it brightens up the palate, revives and refreshes. Whilst the wine has a number of years in bottle it remains vibrant and lively. This is a perfect aperitif, dry with a hint of sweetness, a true palate arouser. No need for food partners with this wine, simply pour and enjoy.
