Tom Hewson’s 2021 England 2021 Special Report

Vintage Sparkling Kerner 2015 [88 points] “Pretty interesting! Lime marmalade on toast with some green apple and florals. Intense, puckering cooked lime and quite a powerful profile on palate – definitely Riesling-like. Unique.

Pinot Noir 2020 [85 points] “Quite intriguing, delicate and fun with a slightly funky rhubarb and herb nose. A white wine brightness on the palate with some lingering bitterness”

Jancis Robinson MW [2010] “Superior English wines…”
