Royal Collection Trust has released a special edition English Sparkling Wine in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The vintage sparkling wine is a classic blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, made exclusively from hand-picked fruit grown on vineyards in Kent and West Sussex. Gold in colour, it has enticing aromas of rich and honeyed citrus fruit, white peach and hints of sweet spices. The wine can be enjoyed as an aperitif and pairs particularly well with mature English cheddar. It also complements British seafood, such as crab, langoustines or classic fish and chips, making the wine a perfect addition to Platinum Jubilee celebrations this summer.

The label design takes inspiration from the gold embroidery on Her Majesty’s Robe of Estate, worn on the Coronation Day, 2 June 1953. A crowned EIIR cypher is surrounded by golden olive leaves and ears of wheat to symbolise peace and plenty.

In addition, British hand-cut Champagne Flute Glasses have gone on sale today. The glasses are engraved with an emblem depicting the national flowers of the United Kingdom and each pair is presented in a satin-lined gift box.
