Judges comments include “Nice brioche notes balanced by soft red fruits. Excellent depth of flavour with a flavoursome pithy finish”. My great-great uncle Lafcadio Hearn / Koizumi Yakumo (1850-1904) was a brilliant travel writer of Greek/Anglo-Irish parents and is still hugely respected in Japan.
Michael’s tasting notes – Seyval blanc gives a burst of fruit and makes the mouth water, this wine has been served by the Royal Household to foreign dignitaries. If you try an English sparkling wine, try this one!
