46th 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.

  • Coopers Croft Suffolk Pinot Noir Rosé 2018 11.5% A dry Pinot Noir rosé, with a simple floral nose, strawberry undertones and crisp finish. To be consumed young and enjoyed on a summer's day. Allergen information forthcoming.
  • Dedham Vale Boxted, Colchester, Essex Romanus 2016 11.0% A crisp dry white wine with aromas of gooseberry, pear and freshly cut grass, and a refreshing finish in the palate. Allergen information forthcoming.
  • Willow Lake 2018 11.0% A crisp refreshing floral and fragrant wine, bursting with apricot, citrus and elderflower. Allergen information forthcoming.
  • Giffords Hall Suffolk Bacchus 11.0% Bacchus is becoming known as the UK's answer to New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. The Giffords house style is dryer than most, but as it is so fruit driven it tends to be mistaken for a medium dry. East Anglian Bacchus is distinctive and has an aromatic, fresh green hedgerow quality. Allergen information forthcoming.
  • Light Oak 12.0% This Fume is precisely what it says on the tin. The 3 year Burgundy barrels lend a very light touch of oak, which is all our delicate Reichensteiner blend needs to give it a buttery finish. The wine is fermented on the lees and stirred, which gives it clarity, extra depth and lovely grassy, green fruit and smoky flavours. Allergen information forthcoming.
  • Madeleine Angeveine 12.0% A light and delicate floral bouquet leads to a refreshing burst of zingy lemon fruit on the palate with distinctive elderflower notes to follow. The finish is apple crisp and there is plenty of depth to the flavours along with a textured mouthfeel giving the wine more weight than the alcohol level suggests. Allergen information forthcoming.
  • Rosé 11.5% Blended from Madeleine Angevine and Rondo grape varieties. Clear glossy peachy pink. Wild strawberry and roses on the nose, with distinctive cherry notes. Allergen information forthcoming.
  • Sparkling Brut 12.0% Made over several vintages in there Traditional method, this fizz celebrates the floral and fruity characters of our English summers, softer on the mousse and fresh in style. Some of the blend is oak fermented and some in stainless with different components of largely Pinot Noir vintages. Allergen information forthcoming.
  • Sparkling Rosé 12.0% Elegant and refreshing sparkling with attractive pink colour and clarity, a floral perfume, a creamy soft mousse, and delicious raspberry and redcurrant fruit notes. On the dry side but has a smoothness and fruit quality together with surprising mouth feel and length. Allergen information forthcoming.
  • St Edmundsbury 11.0% Classic Beaujolais style, made from Rondo and Pinot Noir grape varieties. This is an early drinking 'vin de pays', dry with great nose and length, full of summer fruits and beautifully made in the artisan style. Allergen information forthcoming.
  • Lavenham Brook Suffolk Sparkling Brut 12.0% Allergen information forthcoming.
  • Suffolk Bacchus 2016 11.0% Allergen information forthcoming.
