This is a German grape variety that tends to be planted here in there in the UK but not used for much interesting in wine terms. However the clever guys at Sussex winery Davenport have transformed this funky grape into one of the best sparkling wines we've tasted in years. A true star. It has fresh apple and citrus fruit flavours, mixed with a creamy, biscuity finish. All in all it is simply fabulous and a steal compared to Champagne or even lots of the other sparkling wines from Sussex which are tending to hit the late £30s and early £40s price brackets. A little too rich for us, but why bother when you have fizz like this at a third or more less.
