What we say:
If you want exclusive, if you want different, if you want one the best and purest sparkling wine England has to offer then look no further. The Fox and Fox Inspiration has all that and more.
First of all this is really different with the use of Pinot Gris over the traditional champagne blend. This makes it light, crisp and really refreshing. You then get these luxuriously smooth fine bubbles and honey notes making this wine so easy to drink. The finish is lemon peel which makes it perfect to combine with shellfish, in particular Oysters.
What we love about this wine is it’s not a Champagne copy, the grapes are different, the style and taste is different and the result is superb. Give it a try and taste a real English Sparkling Wine.
