Tasting Note: Pure, sparkling English wine with a delicate perfume of hedgerow flowers, a flavour of green apples and a fine, rich toastiness on the finish.
Food Matching: This is the perfect aperitif or celebration drink, it is the flawless accompaniment to any party, enjoyed with any canapé.
Vineyard: Despite starting off the growing season with exceptionally cold weather for April and May, which delayed budburst by two weeks, we experienced gloriously hot weather in July. This bought on successful flowering and a very healthy fruit set. These favourable conditions allowed the fruit to fly through veraison and ripen nicely, achieving good sugar levels. Harvest started on 2nd October and ended on 5th November.
Vinification: A carefully selected blend from the finest parcels of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Précoce. Approximately 10% of the blend was fermented in old Burgundy barrels and partial malolactic fermentation took place to provide a round and creamy structure. The wine aged on lees for five months in barrel and a further three years in bottle before disgorging with 38 g/L dosage.
