Bolney Estate was planted in the early 1970s on the edge of the South Downs and is now one of England's premier wine producers. The company is still family-run, with Sam Linter, daughter of founders Janet and Rodney, heading up the winemaking team. The focus with all their wines is to create a fruit-driven, linear and very English style.
The Classic Cuvee shows floral and toasted nut notes that combine with zesty apple and citrus fruit. This is a fresh and elegant English sparkling wine, ideal as an aperitif or sipped alongside oily fish, salmon en croute, smoked mackerel pâté and semi-hard cheeses.
