Somersby Blackberry x The Floodgate
Posted on Jul 04, 2022
All through the noughties there has been an ongoing grape war playing out on bar and dining room tables up and down the country.
Its is of course related to those of you with a fizzy persuasion when it comes to your wine
Team Italy, Team France, Team Dry, Team Sweet and probably another 100 teams to follow. Which bench do you sit on (not the park bench we hope)?
We are obviosuly impartial here at The Floodgate and we love them so much that we of course keep both ice cold in our fridges, so next time you are in Digbeth why not pop into the most quirky Champagne & Prosecco bar in Birmingham.
In the Champagne corner we have the Fizzy French Fancy Veuve Clicquot Rose
The coppery champagne, the burst of red fruit aromas…to achieve it, the blend is an essential element, a creative act. The Cellar Master and his team of experts select excellent quality red wines and still wines from some of the most sought-after vineyards in Champagne to find the flavors and characteristics that perfectly express the Veuve Clicquot Rosé style.
Made using 50 to 60 different crus, and 30 to 45% of Reserve wines, the cuvée is based on Yellow Label’s traditional blend: the Pinot Noir predominance (50-55%) provides the structure that is so typically Veuve Clicquot, while Chardonnay (28-33%) adds the elegance and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine, and a touch of Meunier (15-20%) rounds out the blend. The blend is then completed with 12% of still red wine using red grapes, providing fruitiness. The long period of aging in our Crayères (3 years minimum for Rosé) lends silkiness to the Champagne.
In the In the Prosecco corner we have the Italian Ice-Cold Bolla Rose
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
