WINES OF THE WEEK

Three Choirs Silver Jubilee Estate Bottled

2020

England (11.5%, The Wine

Society, £8.95)

An off-dry, still white that riffs around a sweet-sour hedgerow theme. It’s made from about half solaris (a German-created variety), plus madeleine angevine and siegerrebe, and sings of cow parsley and elderflowe­r with warmer, lychee-like fruity notes. One for outdoors when the sun is shining.

Henners Brut NV

East Sussex, England (12%, hennersvin­eyard.co.uk, £37; Taurus

Wines, £29.99)

For a long time Henners has been one of those wineries that flies under the radar but its wines are superb. This is a dazzling English sparkling wine, rich but dry, with toasty, honey-flecked notes and a pleasingly firm, dynamic feel. It’s made from 45% chardonnay, 35% pinot noir and 25% pinot meunier.

Nyetimber Classic

Cuvée NV

England (12.5%, Waitrose, £14.99 for 37.5cl down from

£19.99 until May 4) Nyetimber is one of the most famous English sparkling wines, so I would usually assume you can find your way to it yourselves, but I wanted to highlight these half-bottles currently on offer and handy for those times you want a glass or two. Creamy, toasty and assured.
