English Reserve

5 or Less

The English Reserve is a rarity: a single-vineyard, English Sparkling Demi-Sec. Its an ambrosial fizz tingling with tiny lemon sherbet bubbles. As you’d expect, it has perfect equipoise and is the perfect toast with wedding cake or fruity puddings. We also think its delicious it with our favourite cheeses. Its called ‘English Reserve’ because that is what we English are famous for. Its rather good, but don’t go making a fuss about it.

Matthew Jukes in the Daily Mail: ‘a stunning of-dry fizz with serious class and intrigue. There is not as much sweetness as you might expect and this means that you could drink it as a ravishingly moreish aperitif, too!’

Jonathan Ray 'The Field': 'With pudding, one of my fellow guests opened a bottle of new Ambriel English Reserve, a demi-sec Sparkling wine from Sussex. It was spectacular: toasty and yet creamy and superb with the pud. Quite daring to buy a sweet English wine but it was spot on, revealing the guest to be a risk-taking, opinion-former of style and sound judgment.'

Damian Barr 'Sunday Times Magazine': 'This daring choice froths with tiny bubbles of rhubarb and sherbet' 'Remember, every time you raise a glass, an angel gets its wings'
