The celebration of the century has arrived and what better way to toast the Platinum Jubilee and a four-day bank holiday than with a glass, bottle or magnum of sensational English sparkling from award-winning winery and Hampshire favourite, Hattingley Valley.
MAKE IT A MAGNUM
Whether a street party or a picnic are on the cards, make your celebration fit for a queen with a majestic magnum of something fabulous and fizzy from Hattingley Valley. A sublime summer sip, the Rosé 2018 (£100) is a refreshing and subtle wine boasting delicate colour and well-balanced acidity. Using hand-harvested Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes to create vibrant redcurrant and ripe crunchy red apple flavours, supported by a hint of fine toasty notes, this rosé is versatile and perfect alone or with food – enjoy alongside a decadent cheeseboard with chutneys or a light and fruity Eton Mess.
For a delicate and delicious bank holiday beverage that the whole party will enjoy, opt for a magnum of Blanc de Blancs 2014 (£120), a deliciously fruity and honeyed wine made from the finest Chardonnay grapes. With white stone and citrus fruits on the nose and a honeyed character on the palate, this sparkling wine works sensationally with smoked trout paté or a sharing platter of charcuterie.
KEEP IT CLASSIC
If you’re hosting a more intimate get together, the elegant Classic Reserve NV (£32) is a must – a perfectly balanced blend of several vintages with an abundance of fine bubbles. With aromas of green apples, creamy nougat and freshly baked brioche, this crowd-pleasing fizz is perfect paired with smoked salmon and cream cheese or coronation chicken sandwiches.
An English sparkling wine with a royal seal of approval, the Kings Cuvée 2014 (£85) is Hattingley Valley’s very limited release and premium blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. A flawless accompaniment to any platinum party, the citrus, baked apple, toast and spiced aromas make it the ultimate pairing for any canapé or picnic plate, particularly a caviar and sour cream blini. Voted ‘Best Sparkling Wine in the UK’, the 2014 Kings Cuvée is a celebratory tipple that demands to be shouted about and shared this bank holiday.
