For the last few years English wines have been consistently making a strong impression. England produces about 70% sparkling wines, and as the South Downs share the same chalky soils as the Champagne region, many have been unable to tell the difference in blind tastings. If you still haven’t tried a glass yet, it’s time to get down to business.
Introducing Social Eating House : It's all about the experience
You can find the Social Eating House in the heart of soho and expect an elegant yet casual vibe. The menu is contemporary bistro in style and a winner if you love innovative British cuisine. This is the third restaurant from widely acclaimed chef Jason Atherton and won a Michelin star within six months of opening.
The wine list is original and the diversity shines through. The sparkling list contains two English Sparkling Wines, Gusbourne ‘Estate Brut Reserve’ 2013 from Kent, and Nyetimber Rosé MV from Sussex. Both are served by the glass so this is an ideal opportunity to taste.
A beautiful, sunset pink colour. Aromas include a charming mix of fresh red fruits along with intriguing spice notes of anise and lavender. The palate has a creamy, round texture with refreshing redcurrant, raspberry and cherry flavours. Suggestions of brioche lead into an elegant, silky finish.
