Description

Quite aside from the fact that this is the only wine made from grapes grown in London, that it has green as well as genuinely noble credentials, and that it's social impact is powerful, the wine is beautifully made. It's worthy of a place among the best sparkling wines of the UK.

Lemon yellow. A thick necklace of tiny bubbles. Fragrant – mimosa blossom and lemon cream. Mouth-filling and, quite frankly, gorgeous. Chalky, sinewy texture – it feels alive and as if it’s somersaulting across the palate. Cirque du Soleil in a glass. Hay meadow and intense, almost sweet, yuzu lemon. A hint of English elderflower. Crystalline and practically crackling with electric energy. A finish as neat and crisp as freshly ironed and folded white linen. 2018-2022 17/20 - Tamlyn Curran, Jancis Robinson.com, May '18

London's first sparkling wine, Forty Hall Vineyard's Sparkling Brut is made in the traditional Champagne method from organically grown Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay grapes, harvested entirely from Forty Hall Vineyard in sunny Enfield. A year's ageing on lees pre-release adds depth and richness that some English sparklers lack - multi award-winning English winemaker Will Davenport oversees things; an excellent example of low-intervention, organic winemaking.
