Fox & Fox Inspiration Brut Blanc de Gris, £39 for 75cl (with free delivery) from foxandfox.wine
This won ‘Best Wine’ in our Great British Food Awards 2021, with judge Tom Hunt saying “this wine is a fine example of how exciting English sparkling wine has become. With its balanced zesty flavours, fine fizz and subtle mineral-honey aroma, I’d recommend this wine to anyone.”

Hambledon Classic Cuvée Rosé, £35.00 from hambledonvineyard.co.uk
A beautiful, vivid wild-strawberry pink vintage. On the nose, magnolia blossom is followed by perfumed wild-strawberry compote with hints of buttered white sourdough toast. The palate balances flavours of strawberry balanced with zingy tart cranberry and pithy Amalfi lemon notes. The texture is creamy with a clean, crisp, yeasty finish.

Booths English Sparkling Brut, £22.00 for 75cl from Booths booths.co.uk
Fresh, fruit-forward, and well-rounded style, expressing juicy red berry characteristics and subtle earthy characteristics. Wonderfully versatile and great with food. Serve as an aperitif or pair with charcuterie and rich fish dishes.

Hattingley Valley Classic Reserve NV, £30 for 75cl from hattingleyvalley.com
Pale gold in colour with delicate and fine long-lasting bubbles, the beautifully complex bouquet combines aromas of green apples with creamy nougat and delicate toasted notes from ageing in bottle. On the palate, the complexity continues with notes of soft lemon sherbet, biscuit and a subtle oak character. Refreshing and perfectly balanced, with a delightfully long finish.
