Wine Enthusiast Magazine: 95 points. Editors Choice. ‘Both ripe and tart red-apple notions perfume the nose against a subtle backdrop of yeasty richness. On the palate, a fine mousse disperses these flavors and adds the most subtle hint of honey to them. This is classy and restrained, rich but toned, tart but moreish with its sustained note of pure freshness. This wonderful rendition of really fine English fizz has a lasting finish. This will continue developing. Drink now–2025.’

Jonathan Ray (Drinks Editor of the Spectator) tasted it and wrote: ‘This is sheer class, being gloriously citrusy and toasty, teasingly complex and blessed with the gentlest of mousses and longest of finishes. My goodness it’s good!’
