Positioned between the flagship vintage rosé and 1503 non-vintage expressions is the latest addition to Hush Heath’s portfolio: Leslie’s Reserve. Named after Richard’s wife, this non-vintage, traditional method sparkling wine launched in 2016 as a softer, fruit forward, more accessible introduction to English fizz.

Whole bunch pressing then fermentation in stainless steel tank. The cuvée is selected for a young, fresh style with malolactic fermentation encouraging a softer, more approachable expression. Secondary fermentation in bottle is followed by a minimum of 12 months maturation on lees followed by a dosage of 16 grams per liter producing 750mL of fun!

Bright gold with attractive pink highlights and a fine sustained head. On the nose fresh and clean with hints of brioche and red apple. Beautifully balanced with crisp acidity, refreshing flavors of lime and redcurrant then a touch of sweetness on the finish.
