2016 Hentley Farm Blanc de Noir

Unique.  Intriguing.  And I love it!  How’s that for a start.

When I read the notes saying it was “…a blend of red varieties…” I couldn’t help but be interested.  Who wouldn’t?!

There’s no mucking about with this bottle of bubbles right from the start.  It has a blush that tells me it’s almost embarrassed to be so nice.

Red fruits are evident on the nose (light pinot-esque) and they presented again on the palate too.  It’s fresh, lively and flavoursome, and it lingers thanks to the bright acidity and some texture (I’ve not seen that in a bubbles.  A nice touch).

This is a lovely, fun sparkling wine that has the added bonus of being great value too!! Festive frivolity drinking at its best.
