English Wine Producers

Wine Tasting 2012

 

Thursday May 3rd saw the English Wine Producers (EWP) put on a spectacular tasting in Westminster. Lots of top quality fizz, but also brilliant whites, reds and rose. Nice to see the big boys and girls alongside the boutique vineyards, and OldingManor featured on the South East Vineyard Association banner (Huzzah).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some Haphazard Tasting Notes…

 

In no particular order and by no means comprehensive in any way

(I got through over 30 wines…)

 

Highlights for me included:

 

A’Beckets 2010 Rose

 

Plumpton’s Cloudy Ridge 2010 Red

Made by students, very smooth and plummy

 

Bluebell Blanc de Blanc

 

Hush Heath Chardonnay fizz

 

Gusborne Estate Pinot Noir

Very dry, fresh, suggested served chilled

 

Astley Domain Late Harvest Desert Wine

Amazingly produced in Worcs

 

Jenkyn Place Fizz

 

Three Choirs Pinot Noir
