Seyval Blanc grapes are used to create a bright, fruit-forward and elegant, yet approachable English sparkling wine. Lyme Bay sources its grapes from different vineyards and ferments each parcel separately in order to produce some of the most complex wines in England. 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.
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
