Balfour 1503 Classic Cuvee English Sparkling Wine

I believe our first English wine....
Balfour 1503 Classic Cuvee English Sparkling Wine...$39.99
‘1503’ label, a reference to the date when Hush Heat estate’s historic manor house was built. Made from the property’s younger vineyards and with a slightly higher dosage than the original Balfour wines, these offer a very approachable yet still refined English fizz experience.

After harvest in mid- to late October, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel and cuvées are blended with youthful freshness in mind. Malolactic fermentation helps create a softer, more approachable style. Secondary fermentation in bottle is followed by at least 12 months on lees prior to disgorgement with a ten degree dosage addition.
Production: 3,300 cases
