Sparkling Oak and Elder Wine - Cairn O'Mohr

£29.40 (£9.50 per bottle)

This oakleaf and elderflower sparkling wine from Cairn O'Mohr is fresh, fairly dry, crisp yet floral.

Smaller boutique wineries tend toward the plastic cork for cost purposes. I'm not a fan even if the contents are excellent...which is exactly the case here.

It took quite some time to define the nose which is reflective of the ingredients: gooseberry, lemon, elderflower and sultana. The stronger floral and fresh fruit aromas are pitched against a less intense but identifiable asparagus, dried berry and citrus tang. Quite impressive so far. Tasting then engages you with the same balance as the nose.

Look to introduce as an aperitif or even a fragrant match to white fish or smoked salmon. A genuinely impressive sparkling.
