75cl * 11.5% * West Sussex

Leonardslee family vineyards were planted in 2017 with the aim of creating great English sparkling wine but also to celebrate wine, nature, food, art and design. The 38 acre site is the passion of Penny Streeter and her family, who have a successful vineyard in South Africa and are now applying their motto of achieving excellence to their West Sussex estate. 

The distinctive swallow on the bottle, tells the tail of these migratory birds and their great migration from Africa to Sussex. Reminiscent of Penny's journey and the time she splits between the two vineyards. 

The 2021 Brut is classically English sparkling, with a Chardonnay dominant blend, the wine is fresh, with wonderful notes of green apple and hints of berries from the Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Its time aging on its lees give it the wonderful autolytic character of brioche. Delicate viticulture and balanced winemaking have resulted in a versatile and delicious wine.  Pairs beautifully with a ceviche, creamy lemon chicken dishes or a pasta vongole.
