Swanaford Classic Cuvée 2018 Devon
Vintage sparkling wine made from the classic Champagne varieties – 60% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier.
Delightful floral and brioche notes combine with zesty apple and citrus fruit. Delicate and well balanced, finishing with a soft fresh hint of sweetness. Makes a great aperitif.
Food match - Great paired with shellfish, seafood, poultry, pork, strong cheeses, chicken and smoked salmon.
Swanaford was planted by Ben and Caroline Goulden in 2013 following a move from London, with the ambition of making great English sparkling and still wines. Having prepared the site, a crack team of laser-guided Germans drove in and planted every vine in a day. It seemed easy - until the crack team left and the really hard work began. With Viticulture qualifications in the bag, Ben and Caroline embarked on the vast and, at times, terrifying job of nurturing 10,000 plants into well-trained, highly productive vines.
