An English Afternoon Tea Party at Hambledon Vineyard.
Hambledon recently celebrated 70 years and the UK’s oldest commercial vineyard.
Hosted by Hambledon Vineyard owners Ian & Anna Kellet and Mentzendorff.
Established in 1952 by Major-General Sir Guy Salisbury-Jones, Hambledon Vineyard is a small family-run vineyard on a very big mission: to create the Finest English Fizz.
My favourite wine was the Premier Cuvee lead with 67% chardonnay with an incredible 62 months on lees giving this wine a lovely texture. Other than the fact England can make amazing sparkling wine we make fantastic sparkling pinot Meunier and this has 22% which shines orange blossom.
Its not cheap - slightly more expensive at £55 a bottle, available from their website and Vivino app £45.
Crisp and textured and definitely worth a try.
Perfect with high tea!
