Tesco Finest English Fizz.
Looks like it’s finally with us. Better weather – and the expectation of a nice bit of garden entertaining garnished with some long-awaited sun. The picture could be completed by a glass of Tesco Finest Hush Heath Estate English Sparkling wine.
Hush Heath Estate is located in the green hills of Kent. It has been awarded a Gold accolade by Visit England – the only English winery attraction to achieve that highest award, recognising its contribution to sustainable tourism in the area.
The Estate offers some of the best sparkling wines for which the UK has gained a solid reputation over these last couple of decades. Tesco has formed a partnership with Hush Heath Estate, and present this English Sparkling Brut as part of the Tesco Finest range; it’s a reasonable £21.00 per bottle.
This delicious sparkling wine is produced in the traditional method. That’s the same as used when making Champagne. They hand-harvest Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes to produce a dry and refreshing wine with apple and lemon notes. Serve well chilled as an aperitif and with light summer salads. It also makes the perfect ‘Almost Kir Royal’. This wine is suitable for vegans.
