The Uncommon Gerald English Bubbly White Wine (canned wine 2 x 187ml)

Tasting notes
Light, apply and floral; just perfect as an aperitif.

Why we recommend this wine
We are continuously hunting for UK wines in less than full bottles. With summer on the way this is perfect for picnics, the beach, open air concerts, etc. And we just love the packaging!

The wine
A blend of Bacchus and chardonnay hand-picked in Surrey and Kent. The wine is made specifically to thrive in cans not bottles (not that it will be around long enough to age). It contains 80% less sugar than the average Prosecco. The wine got its sparkle from carbonating it with carbon dioxide. The aluminium can is endlessly recyclable and chills in 10 minutes in the fridge.

The wine estate
The Uncommon were the first to can wine in the UK; thye use bought-in wine. All stages of the wine making process happens within 50 miles of their base in South East London. In addition to having sustainability at the heart of everything they do. They also partner with the Bee Friendly Trust.

Food and wine
Being very light you want light food such as canapes or sea bass with wilted baby spinach. Refer also to our food and wine pairing guide, click here.

Did you know?
Bacchus is the prime contender for an English wine ‘poster grape’ with its taste profile similar to Sauvignon Blanc. It is a cross of a Silvaner x Riesling cross with Müller-Thurgau developed in Germany in the 1930s. It was not allowed in commercially-available wines until the 1970s and is still not highly regarded in its home country. It came into the spotlight when judges at the 2017 Decanter World Wine Awards gave a Platinum Best in Show medal to Winbirri’s Bacchus 2015 white wine from Norfolk.
