Tom described NV Brut Classic as:
A delicate hint of peach colours this wine, giving the appearance of a blanc de noirs rather than a rose. Very fruit aromas, full of berries and peach. An intensely fruit, fresh and elegant palate floats on a soft, airy mousse. Very Pinot, smart and stylish. A triumph for the guys and girls of Plumpton College of Viticulture & Oenology. Winner of Best English Brut NV at the CSWWC 2023.
