Balfour Hush Heath Blanc de Noirs 2018

£34.99

12.0% ABV
A wine of ying and yang, red apple and blackcurrant combine with linear, tangerine citrus, and oyster shell

A pale peach hue with copper highlights, in appearance. On the nose: tangerine and lime with blackcurrant bud undertone. On the palate: the tangerine zest leads seamlessly onto the palate. A wonderfully intense fruit flavour. A rich and complex finish of oyster shell and lemon. The result is a wine of wonderful tension, vibrancy and complexity. As with all Balfour’s vintage sparkling wines, the wine does not go through malolactic fermentation. The malic acid provides backbone and freshness to balance the ripe red fruit characteristics. For English growers, 2018 is something of a watershed moment. A perfect combination of warm and dry conditions at flowering, a consistently temperate summer and a balmy Indian summer which carried through to harvest, led to a crop load unheard of in England and of a quality which confounded many who felt the vines were overburdened.
