Waitrose is delighted to announce the second vintage of Leckford Estate Brut, made from grapes from our own vineyard in Hampshire.
Waitrose was the first supermarket to plant a vineyard and this sparkling wine is the result. This pioneering step strengthens our support of the English and Welsh wine making industry.
This elegant wine is made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes meticulously tended on the Waitrose Leckford Estate in Hampshire. Aromas of toasted brioche and hazelnuts give way to a creamy palate with apple and peach flavours. This is perfect as an apéritif, or pair with smoked salmon.
"We're so excited to finally introduce the Leckford wine to our customers. It's been more than four years in the making, with our dedicated Partners at Leckford working hard to nurture the vines and harvest the grapes. The team at Ridgeview have done a fantastic job to produce an excellent quality English fizz to be proud of and we can't wait for shoppers to try it."
This exquisite English fizz is a brilliant partner to an assortment of smoked salmon canapés. The light bubbles burst on your tongue while not overpowering the delicate salmon flavours.
