Highgate Estate Sparkling Chardonnay-Pinot Noir Cuvee Brut: A Refreshing Delight

A delightful sparkling wine crafted from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, the Highgate Estate Sparkling Chardonnay-Pinot Noir Cuvee Brut offers a beautiful balance of creaminess, citrusy vibrancy, and crisp acidity. Available online at or in our shops located in Liphook and Petersfield, this bubbly is perfect for celebrations, light bites, and refreshing your palate.

Visual: The first impression comes in the form of a pale straw colour, hinting at the delicate nature of this sparkling wine. The bubbles are described as "elegant and lively," dancing playfully in the glass and promising a refreshing experience.

On the Nose: As you bring the glass closer, enticing aromas greet you. The dominant notes are of green apples and citrus fruits, offering a burst of freshness. Supporting these primary aromas is a touch of creaminess, hinting at the Chardonnay's influence and adding a touch of complexity.

On the Palate: The delightful flavours come alive on the first sip. The Chardonnay grape shines through, gracing the palate with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Citrus characters, reminiscent of those detected on the nose, add a vibrant layer of refreshment. The magic touch comes from the Pinot Noir, its acidity providing a perfect counterpoint to the creaminess, ensuring the finish is clean, crisp, and invigorating.

Food Pairing: This versatile sparkling wine pairs beautifully with a variety of dishes. Its refreshing nature makes it an ideal companion for lighter fare. Here are some suggested food pairings to tantalise your taste buds:

  • Canapés and Starters: Kick off your next gathering with a selection of canapés and starters. The Highgate Estate Brut complements smoked salmon blinis, creamy goat cheese with roasted vegetables, or even delicate seafood salads.
  • Salads and Vegetarian Dishes: Salads bursting with fresh greens, cherry tomatoes, and a light vinaigrette find a perfect match in this sparkling wine.  For vegetarian mains, consider pairing it with creamy mushroom risotto, goat cheese and roasted beetroot tart, or asparagus with a hollandaise sauce.
  • Fish and Seafood: This delightful bubbly beautifully complements the delicate flavours of fish and other seafood.  Try it with grilled Dover sole, pan-seared scallops with lemon butter sauce, or even fish and chips – the acidity will cut through the richness of the batter.
  • Desserts: While typically enjoyed before or during a meal, Brut styles can also complement certain desserts. Consider pairing it with fruit tarts, lemon posset, or even a crème brûlée – the acidity will help cleanse the palate between bites.

In Conclusion:

The Highgate Estate Sparkling Chardonnay-Pinot Noir Cuvee Brut is a fantastic choice for those seeking a refreshing and well-balanced sparkling wine. Its delightful flavours and versatility make it perfect for various occasions, from celebratory toasts to casual gatherings.
