After the nigh-perfect 2018 vintage, England has had a hard act to follow with 2019! Indeed, by all other standards, 2019 was a very good vintage for England, but this is perhaps skewed by the fact that 2018 lifted the bar so high. 2019 has produced ripe, juicy and more classically English wines than the 2018s, which were fuller on the mid-palate and perhaps rounder. While it will be some time before the sparkling wines hit the market, 2019 is looking like a better vintage than 2018 as acidity is key for top fizz, and these will likely age better in the long term.
