Sigh, my English holiday is almost over. For a last night tipple I decided to indulge in an English bubbly. The Hambledon Vineyard NV Classic Cuvée, (an English Quality Sparkling Wine), was a delightful choice for toasting the conclusion of a wonderful trip.
The back label says, "Established in 1952, Hambledon Vineyard is England's oldest commercial vineyard. Hambledon is also the cradle of cricket." I did not know either of those little factoids. I do now.
A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier this was a very nice sparkling wine which paired quite well with my salmon dinner. Later, England!
California here I come.
