Raimes Classic 2018

£32.49

11.5% ABV
Vibrating, fresh core with lemon verbena, Asian pear, chalky minerality; amazing drive and energy

The elegance of RAIMES English Sparkling starts to happen on the south-facing slopes of its Hampshire vineyard. Here the chalk substratum lends a particular minerality that helps to achieve a delicate balance of ripeness, acidity and berry aroma. Wines are made in the traditional method using only grapes grown by the Raimes family. The 2018 Classic is a carefully selected blend of the three classic varieties: 62% Chardonnay, 19% Pinot Noir and 19% Pinot Meunier, bottle-fermented in the traditional method. The wine is partially fermented and aged in barrels, on lees for 30 months, helping to produce a soft, fine mousse. It has great minerality, fresh citrus characteristics and a hint of stone fruits filling out the profile. A super-long finish.
