A light and delicate sparkling wine from Yorkshire.
This has an apple yeasty, and biscuit nose. The fine mousse and delicate fresh apple flavour develops into a hint of honey with age.
Chill well before serving as an aperitif.
The Leventhorpe vineyard was established by George Bowden in 1985. The vineyard is a five acre site near Leeds on a south facing slope which leads down to the River Aire.
The soil is well drained sandy loam overlying sand and broken sandstone.
The wines have been reommended by people such as Rick Stein, Oz Clarke and Jancis Robinson.
In 2009 Leventhorpe Sparkling Brut was served at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year held in Sheffield.
