Wyfold Vineyard Sparkling Wine, 2009

Wyfold Vineyard Sparkling W Wyfold Vineyard Sparkling Wine, 2009There are some pretty big stories in the press this week, but without a doubt the most important of all is that we are expecting a heat wave this weekend (19 degrees on Sunday apparently)!   There’s no better way to enjoy a spot of fun in the sun than with a glass of fizz and keeping things quintessentially British, grab a bottle of Wyfold Vineyard Sparkling Wine, 2009.  The wine of a South Oxfordshire-based female winegrower, a judging panel of 14 of the UK’s top wine experts recently placed it in first place in the annual English Wine tasting, beating off 78 other top English Sparkling Wines and three Champagnes along the way.  Made from grapes traditionally used in Champagne (including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier), the result is a dry and infinitely quaffable wine with a good balance of sweetness and acidity.  £24.99 from http://www.laithwaites.co.uk
