45th Cambridge Beer Festival Wine List

Changes to this list can occur throughout the festival – some wines will run out before the end of the festival, and new wines may appear if we restock. We’ll endeavour to keep this as up to date as we can, including updating the status of each wine.

  • Chilford Hall Linton, Cambs Blush 2016 10.5% Pink wine carrying aromas of strawberry and cream, raspberries and lemon
  • Graduate 2013 11.5% Clean, fresh sparkling wine with hints of apple and lime
  • Müller-Thurgau Schönburger 2014 11.0% Fresh white wine bursting with grapefruit and lime flavours

  • Colchester Oyster 2016 11.5% Off-dry white with lemon, green apple and ripe pear aromas
  • Reserve 2015 10.5% An exciting ruby red medium-bodied English wine. Dedham Vale Reserve yields inviting red berry aromas while developing complex flavours of redcurrants, raspberries and liquorice, leavened by gentle tannins from time spent ageing in French Limousine oak barrels that linger lovingly on the palate. It is made by blending four different varieties of grape – Rondo, Dornfelder, Dunkelfelder and Pinot Noir. It is drinking well now and will develop over the coming years. The Reserve is a perfect accompaniment to all meat and pasta dishes and an imaginative alternative to Claret.
  • Sparkling English Brut 2015 12.0% This dry sparkling wine is made using the Méthode Champenoise. It has spent time on its lees in the cellar and has a refreshing lively mousse (the French term for the head of bubbles that rise to the top of a sparkling wine), good depth on the palate with attractive fresh fruit flavours and yeasty overtones. The grapes used are Orion and Chardonnay. It is delightful at all times, the perfect celebratory drink and a lovely accompaniment to fish, shellfish or canapés.
