Mountfield Classic Cuvée 2016. East Sussex, England
Dry sparkling wine, 75cl. Medium bodied Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier blend from East Sussex, England, United Kingdom. 12.0% ABV.
The Mountfield Classic Cuvée is a delightful English sparkling wine oozing class, with aromas of lemon, citrus and peach which follow through on the palate, alongside crisp red apple with a touch of brioche and creaminess. A lush mousse on the finish with lively acidity and freshness makes this very moreish.
Fermented in stainless steel and held in barrel and tank until bottling in April 2017. The wine is blended with 5% of the 2015 vintage for further complexity and was lees aged for over 4 years before being disgorged in 2021.
Suggested food pairings: perfect as an aperitif or partner to shellfish, fish & chips, white fish such as dover sole and white meats.
