English Sparkling white wine – Skylark & Artisan Chocolates Valentine’s Day Gift Box

£35.00

Skylark Brut 2021 vintage is a lovely white sparkling wine, just recently released after 2 years in the making. In the year of 2019 Skylark was made in the traditional double fermentation method for the very first time, which means there is more depth and complexity compared to previous vintages of this wine. Skylark Brut 2019 won a Bronze award from WineGB. Our 2021 vintage has wonderful floral and fruit aromatics of apple, melon, white peach, apricot, and tropical fruits with just a hint of Elderflower on the nose and the subtle toastiness of the traditional method. Made in South Norfolk from a blend of 80% Phoenix, 20% Seyval Blanc. Inspired by the melodious little birds that rise above the stunning permaculture on our Norfolk vineyard, Skylark is a great celebratory drink on its own but goes particularly well with canapés and with friends and family at parties.
