Ingram Rd En Vie Blanc de Noir. I say ‘En Vie’ as in the French, ‘in life!’ You say ‘Envy’ as in ‘I want what you have.’ However you say it, En Vie is a sparkling wine that invites a celebration; relaxed, spirited, simple, complex – wherever the mood or occasion takes you.
A stunning sparkling, destined for great quality drinking, the 2015 Blanc de Noir has alluring aromas of cream biscuits and fresh strawberry; a generous mouth filling palate delivering flavours of shortbread and subtle berry fruits – a clean fresh finish.
A celebration of life – that’s why we made it!
Lovely colour, bright pale straw with very subtle pink tinge. The nose is perfumed: citrus and orange blossom springs to mind, maybe a little musk and hints of red fruit. On the palate the wine is lively and fresh, a balanced creamy mouth feel with a crisp finish. Again, the flavours of perfumed citrus, orange blossom and strawberries and cream. Quite delicious actually.
Not as bready or toasty as a typical French Champagne; more lively and zesty. Perfect aperitif. The significant increase in the Pinot Noir component adds that little extra.
