Glass of bubbly? Don’t mind if I do guv…

The first few sips were very impressive; then I made the fatal mistake of placing the glass down so I could take a few photos of the venue. And the wind blew the glass over… all was lost. I was just about to nick this glass, full and highly tempting, but alas its owner returned to lay claim. Selfish I call it; just ’cause it was her glass…

The venue? The most splendid Pig down in the New Forest. The wine? A citrus-fresh, toast-laden Danebury Cossack 2005 made in Hampshire. The photo? This weeks Sunday Wine Shot.

Cossack sparkling wines are made from a blend of the Auxerrois Blanc (Auxerrois Blanc is a cross between Gouais blanc and Pinot noir, the same ancestry as Chardonnay) and Rulander grapes (A German synonym for Pinot Gris). It is made using the traditional bottle fermentation method and aged for at least 5 years on its lees. Danbury Estate
