We visited Hambledon Vineyard, makers of some of the World’s best sparkling wine.
We had a taste of the Classic Cuvee (Chardonnay 40%, Pinot Meunier 31% and Pinot Noir 29%) – a vibrant nose, quite fragrant with notes of apple and some elderflower. I found the palate quite creamy, again notes of apple and some pear, quite crisp as well. Acidity was very well balanced. A really superb sparkling wine, as good as any champagne I’ve tasted (and I’ve tasted quite a few) and much better than most.
I’ll buy a bottle next time I go home to Clanfield. We’re lucky to have this beautiful spot on out doorstep.
Some colour shifts with this Fuji Provia.
