Bluebell's English Sparkling Wine.

Winemaker, Kevin Sutherland, has crafted a chardonnay-dominant wine that has spent over four and a half years ageing on yeast lees before release.  

Our Winemaker’s Classic Blend begins with toasted notes of hazelnut and nutmeg on the nose, before opening up to reveal red fruit and spice notes.  Complex and mature from extended lees ageing the wine has intense autolytic notes which show wonderful development and character.

On the palate, the wine expresses mature fruit notes of raspberries, wild strawberry, plums, baked apple and hints of tropical fruit, along with rich marmalade and sultana characters which create a rich, bold and exceptionally long finish.

The toasty notes and richness of this wine make it perfect to match with food including smoked fish, chicken and game dishes.
