Windsor Great Park is a sparkling wine that offers richness and finesse. Pale gold in colour with a delicate toasted brioche, apricot and citrus aroma and the flavour of lemon, stone fruit with a toasty length.

16,700 Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier vines were planted in a seven-acre, south-facing patch of the park owned by the Queen in 2011.

The first grapes were harvested in October 2013 and produced 3,000 bottles and after spending two years ageing in the cellars, the wine was released three months ago, but have already sold out. A second batch is expected to be released this autumn, priced at £35 a bottle.

Grapes from the estate were made into wine at the family-run Ridgeview estate in Ditchling, East Sussex.
