Description

A pale-gold pioneer of the fresh, fruit-forward English style with a fine mousse and bright elegant finish. Aromas dance between creamy citrus zest and white peach, gently balanced by fresh honey. On the palate, crisp apple and brioche are met with the characteristic freshness and finesse. Elegant now but will age gracefully.

Vineyard

Grapes are sourced from our original estate vines, along with carefully selected partner vineyards across Southern England; typically south facing, with free draining slopes, on varied chalk, clay, gravel and sandstone soils. These sites range from between 10-50 metres above sea level, benefitting from a cool, maritime climate.

Yield: 32 hl/ha

Handpicked grapes are gently pressed in whole bunches, and fermented in stainless steel tanks at 18-20°C, using classic sparkling wine yeasts.
