I do love to get parcels and presents and this one was superb. I even got a rose to keep.
This vineyard is owned and run by Graham and Lorna Wilks, along with their three daughters. They have four acres of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, Bacchus, Dornfelder and Rondo grapes.
I guess I should get to the tasting, this was a family affair at my daughter Jodie’s with Sam and Megan the chief tasters and myself of course.
This wine was fruity and refreshing on the palate, so would go with many dishes. It is dry but the rich taste of berries takes away that harsh dryness you get with some wines, I prefer sparkling wine and this did not disappoint.
I am looking forward to trying their red wine when I do the tour.
What a superb present that makes for someone special.
I would like to thank Graham and Lorna for giving me the opportunity of trying their wonderful sparkling wine and I really hope more local businesses start to stock these superb wines.
