Astley Vintage Brut
Kerner grapes (Riesling x Trollinger) are rarely grown in England. At Astley, however, they have proved to be an ideal variety for sparkling wine production as they have the essential levels of reliable acidity and a complimentary and elegant flavour profile. The result is a wonderfully soft and smooth sparkling wine which is beautifully bright and clear in the glass with plenty of bubbles. Soft aromas of gooseberries, peach and biscuity notes with a delicate palate of crisp green apple skins, soft peaches and a soft creamy butter to add some texture and balanced flavour. A long finish which is incredibly moorish.
The traditional secondary fermentation in the bottle together with only a sparse addition of dosage helps create this unique and rare dry sparkling wine. Perfect if you like your sparkling with a smooth edge.
