Blackboys - Tickerage 2011 Blush
An excellent follow up to the acclaimed 2009 Tickerage Blush, this is a delicious and intense rosé sparkler from the exceptional 2011 harvest. Golden salmon pink with a sustained bead. Spicy notes with peppery hints. The palate has a crisp, English acidity with rich blackberry and redcurrant fruit. Long and complex finish.
Michael’s tasting notes for Blackboys;
Anthony has produced three excellent wines and one cider which are a pleasure to taste. Blackboys only produce on average 10,000 bottles of wine each year and so are typical of a small batch producer. These wines offer a refined and considered selection of English wines which belie the age of this relatively young vineyard.
