With 2018 being such a good year for English wine, we decided to celebrate with a selection of limited edition sparkling wines.
Tom’s Cuvée has been made using the traditional double fermentation method. This White Sparkling Wine is made with our Seyval and Madeleine Angevine Grapes. Our Tom’s Cuvée showcases all the hallmarks of a classic English fizz. The nose has bountiful aromas of lemon, hazelnut and fresh apple. As a brut, the palate is dry but fruit lead with notes of delicate citrus and subtle toasty notes. The finish has great length and just leaves you wanting more.
Thomas Nathan Wilson is one of the third generations living and working at Little Wold Vineyard. He re-joined the business in 2014 with his wife Nikki and daughters Ellie and India. Tom grew up on the farm working alongside Henry as a boy; little did he know then he’d one day be caring for vines rather than wheat or barley.
Alice’s Cuvée has been made using the traditional double fermentation method. This Rosé sparkling wine is made with a blend of our Rondo, Seyval and Madeline grapes. A beautifully salmon pink colour in the glass the nose gives wonderful aromas of freshly picked summer berries and a hint of clotted cream. The palate has subtle layers of strawberry, raspberry and redcurrant. The mouthfeel is elegant and balanced with a dry, crisp and refreshing finish.
Alice Georgina Maltby (nee Wilson) is one of the third generations of Wilson’s working at Little Wold Vineyard. One of her greatest achievements is our wedding site. She was one of the first people to marry at the vineyard back in 2016 to her husband Andrew and their family has since grown with the arrivals of Harry and Georgina.
Ours is a Pinto Noir and Chardonnay blend (a first for Little Wold Vineyard)
The Wilson family have owned and managed the land where the vineyard now sits for over 70 years. With three generations of the family currently working on the land we hope the land will stay in our family for generations to come.
