Lyme Bay Brut Reserve NV

£19.99

10.5% ABV
Bright, fruit forward, lemon and Granny Smith with crisp clean finish

Seyval Blanc grapes are used to create a bright, fruit-forward and elegant, yet approachable English sparkling wine. Secondary fermentation in bottle under the Traditional Method process provides structure to the mid-palate and detail to the body of the wine without overpowering the delicate crisp citrus fruit. Pronounced notes of lemon and Granny Smith apple stand out amongst a vibrant and delicate mousse with a clean finish. Lyme Bay is a small, dedicated West Country company passionate about producing delicious and award-winning English Wines, Fruit Wines, Ciders, Meads and Liqueurs from their home in Devon’s beautiful Axe Valley. 26,000 vines were planted in 2009 and 2010 within a stone’s throw of their winery. They also source grapes from a select group of the best growers in the South of England, believing that truly special wines are born from grapes with diverse backgrounds.

www.jancisrobinson.com review: Distinctly golden – I wonder how long it’s been on the lees? Quince and daphne florals and a buttery lemon-cream richness on the nose and the palate. Wonderful zesty lime peel and orange oils, piquant in an unexpectedly weighty depth of clotted-cream-on-toast. Green apples and a dusting of cinnamon spice. Long, persistent, graceful balance. I did not expect something this classy from Seyval Blanc. Good Value 16.5/20 (Tamlyn Currin)
