Hoffmann & Rathbone Rose Reserve, 2011: "Redcurrant and cranberry vie for attention with the slightly wilder notion of rosehip to create a lifted aroma with a wonderful edge of aromatic tisane, hinting at some evolution. The palate confirms this with wonderfully rich autolysis: oatmeal and biscuit, a touch of honey and the alluring brightness of both fresh and candied lemon peel. This is utterly slender but totally profound. A subtle, impressive and convincing wine with just the right amount of evolution..." 94/100 Wine Enthusiast
Wiston Estate Brut: "A cuvée of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay made on the South Downs by Irish winemaker, Dermot Sugrue, this is a complex, toasty, savoury fizz with fine bubbles, lots of yeasty, bready autolysis and a bone dry, tapering finish.” Tim Atkin MW, TimAtkin.com
Exton Park Brut Reserve: "Whole wheat toast and hazelnuts, with pomelo and flinty aromas lead to a taught palate with fine bubbles and intense concentration of flavour."92/100 and awarded a silver medal at the International Wine Challenge.
