Gusbourne Estate Brut 2016
Appledore, Kent, England
Bright gold in colour, this blend highlights red fruit aromas of cherry and strawberry, which then develop into attractive fresh pastry notes with a touch of cinnamon and spice. With a bright streak of citrus fruit, the palate is clean and fresh whilst giving tones of soft stone fruit and a long, refreshing finish. Enjoyed at L’Enclume, it is the flexible partner for contemporary and classic English food pairings; from seared scallops to smoked eels to fish and chips.
