England

English wines are rapidly garnering attention and prestige in the global wine industry, thanks to the country's unique climate and geography, which create an environment conducive to producing an array of high-quality wines now recognised worldwide. One of the most renowned offerings in this budding industry is English sparkling wine, often compared to Champagne due to the striking similarities in both production methods and flavour profiles.


Terroir, the combination of climate, soil, and other environmental factors that contribute to a wine's character, plays a crucial role in English sparkling wine's close resemblance to its French counterpart. Much like the iconic champagne-making region in France, certain areas in England, such as the South Downs, Kent, and Sussex, boast a mix of chalky soils and cool, maritime climates that help generate crisp acidity and refreshing notes of citrus and green apple in their sparkling wines.


In addition to sparkling wine, England is also home to an impressive selection of high-quality still wines, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Bacchus. Known for their bright acidity and fruit-forward flavours, these wines are further evidence of the significant impact of terroir on the eventual taste and quality of a wine.


Wineries such as Chapel Down, Nyetimber, and Wiston Estate are leading the charge in producing excellent English sparkling wines that are captivating the palates of wine enthusiasts across the globe. Typically, made using the traditional method, these sparklers benefit from the region's terroir, closely resembling the characteristics of Champagne. In recent years, this similarity and a growing concern for global warming has witnessed well-known Champagne houses buying up land in England. Bringing together hundreds of years of sparkling wine production with a new and exciting terroir that's gaining global interest.


As awareness and appreciation of English wines continue to grow, it is clear that the local terroir plays a pivotal role in these offerings' success, notably in the striking parallels between English sparkling wines and the iconic Champagne. As a result, wine lovers everywhere can now explore the unique wine that the rolling hills of England has to offer.

The 2017 Boot Hill Vineyard Guinevere comes from selected parcels of Chardonnay from the estate, matured for 12 months in oak barriques. Silvery in hue, it has a well-defined bouquet with almond and sesame scents, developing subtle marine-like notes with aeration. The oak is nicely integrated both on the nose and on the palate, which is underpinned by a fine bead of acidity that counters the creamy texture. Sour lemon mixes with white peach and hazelnut, maintaining impressive focus and poise toward the persistent finish. Excellent.

The 2016 Blanc de Noirs is aged for 36 months in bottle with a dosage of 3g/L. It has a burnished silvery hue. The well-delineated nose is an absolute delight, presenting scents of orange pith, brioche, toasted pine nuts and a hint of white peach in the background. The palate is well poised with a light walnut opening, quite saline in the mouth and precise toward the finish; a touch of blackberry appears on the aftertaste. Impressive energy and sophistication are clear to see in what might be one of England's best Blanc de Noirs. Highly recommended.

Masses of fresh, ripe raspberry fruit beautifully balanced by meaty density and a tangy yet comforting breadth that reminds me a bit of rhubarb compote on challah toast. There's great substance and interest here – you could even pair this with rare beef or beef carpaccio without a problem. (TC)

The NV Cuvée Dr Brendan O’Regan, disgorged in February 2020, is based on 2016, with some reserve of the 2009 vintage, and it is in its second release. It is named after Dermot Sugrue’s grandmother’s brother, who essentially invented duty-free in Ireland. With a slightly higher dosage (10g/L), it presents a clean, precise, very complex bouquet of gunflint and smoke combined with orange pith and honeysuckle, all extremely well defined and displaying a little more spiciness than the regular cuvées. Possessed of wonderful depth and quite saline, it fans out brilliantly toward a finish that lingers in the mouth. Stunning. 800 bottles produced.
