What's in the case?
Becky has included two amazing white wines in this case – the Bride Valley Dorset Chardonnay and the Winbirri Bacchus.
The Bride Valley Dorset Chardonnay is similar in taste to a delicious French Chablis. It has a very floral nose coupled with green apple, lime zest, pink grapefruit and kiwi skin. On the palate it is surprisingly broad, with summer fruits, lots of natural acidity lifting the length and the finish.
The Winbirri Bacchus is from an award winning vineyard and some say it is one of the best wines in the country! This vintage of Bacchus has an elegant nose of grapefruits, passion fruits and floral characters. On the palate it has tropical fruits backed with a clean crisp finish.
A favourite for most people – the Trevibban Black Ram is a young and vibrant, ruby red English wine that Becky loves! This wine has spent 11 months in the finest french oak barrels from Burgundy. This is a medium bodied red that gives dark chocolate, baked plums, black cherry and black pepper on the nose. This follows with a juicy blackcurrant palate with a hint of smoke – amazing!
Becky is a chardonnay lover and so this case wouldn’t be right without a blanc de blancs!
The Woodchurch Blanc de Blancs is an impressive award winner boasting a gold medal at the prestigious Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships 2019, silver medal at the 2019 Decanter world wine awards and silver medal at the 2018 International Wine and Spirit Competition! This wine has aromas of delicious pears and almonds. On the palate is refreshing apple and butter flavours and a beautifully long citrus lime finish.
This case also wouldn’t be complete without the English sparkling wine that Becky first discovered and loved – The Nyetimber Classic Cuvee! This well regarded wine has distinctive toasty and spicy aromas. A palate of honey, almond, pastry and baked apples gives it a hint of decadence. Intense yet delicate, elegant yet complex – it’s no wonder it’s consistently crowned one of the best English sparkling wines!
Becky loves a dry, pale and crisp rosé so this Albury Organic Silent Pool Rosé ticks all the boxes. Perfect if you love a Provence style rosé, this wine has subtle red berry and bright citrus aromas on the nose are followed by fresh summer flavours of strawberries and cream, peach and pink grapefruit on the palate. The wine is balanced by clean minerality and crisp acidity, with a long mouth-watering finish.
