The Wine Society's English White 2020 review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips


Why do English sparkling wines get all the look in when great value English whites are just as fab? This freshly bottled example from the Gloucestershire Three Choirs vineyard is sold under The Wine Society label was blended together just before Christmas 2020 from six grape varieties you will only have heard of unless you follow the English wine scene closely but one of them provides a distinct grapefruit kick. Is it the Madeleine Angevine, Reichensteiner, Phoenix, Seyval Blanc, Solaris or Siegurebe? Add in the pineapple, melon and apple fruitiness and the whole mix is a delight. But don't serve it too cold, even though it is a white wine, as the delicate flavours will disappear.
