Tasting Notes

Leander Pink is a blend that celebrates England’s most vibrant Pinot Noir fruit and is produced exclusively for the world famous Leander Rowing Club. Sales support the Leander Academy, training the rowing world champions of the future.

Here’s a fabulous fizz that’s nicely packaged. There are hints of spring hedgerows and rhubarb as well as clean, pure citrus fruits plus some red cherries. It’s stylish stuff.
Jamie Goode, 'The best fizz from England' June 2016


30% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier. Impressively evolved aromas of red stone fruits and flowers, and a precise, well-made quality to the palate. Loads of rising bubbles - tantalising! - and attractive rhubarb and sour cherry elements over crisp fresh acidity.
91/100, Decanter World Wine Awards
