Sampling Wines from Elizabeth Rose Wines Ltd (Episode 188 – Part 2)

In part 2 of this episode, we taste some of the fantastic wines that are available to buy from their website at https://www.elizabethrosewines.co.uk/ 

 

The first wine we taste is from a small vineyard in the East Anglia (Essex) called Toppesfield Vineyard and is made from the Bacchus Grape.

The next wine we taste a Rose from Giffords Hall stable. This wine is made from Pinot noir and Madeleine Angevine grapes.

Next, we tasted a Woodchurch Classic Cuvee made from the same grapes that go into Champagne – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinoy Meunier.

Finally, we tasted a Red Wine from the Trevibban Mill on the North Cornwall Coast who try to be as organic as possible. This particular wine is a blend using Rondo and Dornfelder grapes.

Tasting 3 Choirs Wines (Episode 181 Part 2)

This episode follows John L’s visit to the Three Choirs Vineyard. Martin Fowkes, the Winemaking Director, kindly gave us some samples for John M to try back in the cellar.

The first wine we taste is their Cuvee.

Their Cuvee is in fact only £16.99, not the £20 that was quoted in the video and can be purchased via this link:- https://www.three-choirs-vineyards.co.uk/product/classic-cuvee-n-v/

This was a great tasting sparkling wine without the acidity people often associate with sparkling wine including Champagne. This Cuvee seemed incredible value as it deserved to be respected and enjoyed rather than just “necked”.

The next wine was 3 Choirs White Wine made from the Bacchus grape, whilst John M was slightly disappointed in the amount length, but John L really really enjoyed it. It was similar to Sauvignon Blanc, but once again had none of the acidity of Sauvignon Blanc which makes it ideal for those of you that like Sauvignon Blanc but do not like the acidity of this grape.

The final we taste is the 3 Choirs Vineyards Red Wine. This wine is ideal in our opinion for those people that are looking to move on from just drinking white to also wanting to drink red. the tannins are very light and the wine is very fruity. It’s nose (bouquet) is very similar to the Gamay grape which is used to make Beaujolais.


These wines are available directly from the Three Choirs website the address for which is https://www.three-choirs-vineyards.co.uk/
