This wine has a fresh light yellow colour touched with hints of lemon. The continuous pin-prick bubbles show the bottle fermented effervescence. The Crémant has a much less aggressive fizz and because of this it gently slides onto the palate which a fantastic creamy expression which is then backed by hints of white flowers and white summer fruits.
The first English "Crémant" is a blend of the 2015 and 2016 vintages, produced from the Champagne trio of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Meunier. The wine was initially fermented in stainless steel, then transferred to bottle for the second fermentation according to the traditional method. It has shorter lees ageing, lower pressure, and a slightly higher dosage than other Bride Valley wines to produce a creamy texture worthy of the name.
