Boco by House Coren
It’s any excuse to crack open the fizz at Muddy, and we’ve just found a new one in Boco by House Coren, made in West Sussex.
It’s no wonder sparkling wine is so popular – we always seem to open some when we’re celebrating! It’s easy to drink (sometimes TOO easy), tastes great and the bubbles dance on your palette.
But did you know despite it being one of the most widely consumed varieties of wine, it’s one of the most complex to make as it requires two fermentations – one to make the wine and one to create the bubbles?
Boco by House Coren, established in 2019, is created using the Charmat (or tank) method, which differs from the traditional in a number or ways. Put simply the wine undergoes its second fermentation in sealed tanks (instead of a bottle), and after its filtered, is bottled under pressure before being left to mix for a month before it’s ready to drink – hurray!
Wines created this way have a freshly made fruit-driven character and often rival more expensive traditional method sparkling wines. Boco is a high-quality Charmat sparkling wine with the best grapes from England, but still reasonably priced. It’s an appealing pale, white peach shade with ultra-fine bubbles and tastes of delicious fruit; peaches, ripe pears, a hint of raspberry and a clean citrus and green apple finish. Dribbles.
It’s great with shellfish, charcuterie, canapés and pizza – oh who are we kidding it’s great with everything. Cheers!
