Albury Estate Blanc de Blancs
This quality sparkling wine is quintessenially English. With its pale lemon colour, citrus and fresh herbs on the nose, and really fresh, crisp lemon and lime on the palate. Well balanced with a hint of honeyed sweetness, it is ideal for drinking on its own, but with enough crisp acidity for it to go with foods such as smoked fish or light meat dishes.

The vineyard is privately owned by Nick Wenman who lives in Albury near to the vineyard. It is managed by Alex Valsecchi who until recently was at at RHS Wisley responsible for the Orchard, Nursery, Model Fruit Area and the Vineyard. Alex has extensive experience in Vineyard Management having created the vineyard at Wisley following several years practical experience working on vineyards in New Zealand.
