Seabass and English Sparkling Wine

From the oceans of the British Isle to the English countryside, there are wonders in every corner of this great nation and a great variety to enjoy from fish to English Sparkling Wine.

Fish and Fizz are a combination, with them both bringing out flavours in each other, an elegant English Sparkling Wine like this needs to be enjoyed by the glass and with a meal, so I’ve gone for a Seabass Fillet on a bed of salad.

High Clandon Estate

The Quintessence of England

Thanks to Sibylla and Bruce Tindale, High Clandon Estate Vineyard was founded in 2004, they both have a huge passion for creating English Sparkling Wine, their soil, location, climate and cultivation create amazing grapes which with skilled wine-making results in their Endymion Cuvée Vintage range winning awards.

High Clandon Estate – Endymion Cuvée Prestige 2015 Brut Tasting Notes

Aroma – “👃Peach, truffles and nuts on the aroma.”

Flavour – “👅Citrus, brioche and floral, crisp and smooth.”

This English Sparkling Wine Won a Silver Medal in the Zesty & Zingy Category at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly Awards 2020.

I was impressed by this 2015 vintage English Sparkling Wine, although it won a Silver Medal, I would have personally given it a Gold Medal, it’s a very fine example of what the English can create with fizz.

The Seabass and English Fizz Pairing

Pairing Notes – “Sweet sherbert citrus, reduced acidity with the spicy element appearing at the close and a hint of hazelnut.”

The Fish and the High Clandon go well together, they both bring out the best in each other, the chilli sauce is a wild card, which may not work for everyone, if you’re a fan of a little spice, then you’ll most likely enjoy it.
