Top 10 wines in the US press

Will Lyons recommends a sparkler with “finesse and elegance”, while Laurie Daniel reveals “one of the best domestic rosés” he’s tasted this year.

US PressIn the Wall Street Journal, Lyons features English sparkling wine, speaking to Nick Hall of Herbert Hall Wines. Lyons wrote: “Herbert Hall is one of a string of vineyards planted in the past 10 years in what will surely be known as the great English wine boom of the early 21st century. From a standing start in the 1950s, England now has more than 400 commercial vineyards, with a handful—Sussex’s Nyetimber and Ridgeview, Cornwall’s Camel Valley and Surrey’s Denbies, in particular—claiming to produce sparkling wine as good as, if not better, than their counterparts in Champagne.

“When good, English vineyards produce a dry, delicate sparkling wine with floral fruit and a burst of light, zippy, refreshing acidity. Where English sparkling wine falls down, in my opinion, is the constant comparison with Champagne. The two wines, although made in the same way with the same grape varieties on similar terroir, taste quite different.”
