Gusbourne Blanc De Noir 2016 Sparkling White Wine
Displaying great finesse in the glass, the Blanc de Noirs is expressive on the nose with fine-tuned notes of dried candied fruits and violet flower. It is characteristically deep and complex, rich and powerful. It is a wine that holds your attention with serious appeal. Crunchy, crisp cox apple, fresh cherry and raspberry, taut, pure and clean citrus acidity all combining with great precision. Juicy fleshiness coats the mouth with silky texture. There is real intensity and weight here on the palate, but the balance is such that it remains delicate and neat on the refreshing and long, persistent finish

A mild spring resulted in a mid-April bud burst. The weather during flowering was warm and dry resulting in abundant fruit being set. Early August saw 50% of fruit dropped to intensify flavour and concentration. Harvest began in early October and resulted in fruit of exceptional quality
