Description

Only made in years where our Pinot grapes achieve the perfect balance of ripeness. The deep golden colour hints at the rich complexities to come where blackcurrant and apricot aromas are complemented by hints of sweet spice and fresh herbs. The palate bursts with snappy red cherries and toasted almonds and the full mousse leads to a long, harmonious finish.

Vineyard

Grapes were 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.

Winemaker

Simon Roberts

Viticulture

Vines up to 25 years in age. Combination of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier varietals. Vine density average 4000 per hectare. Double guyot pruning with vertical shoot positioning. All grapes handpicked.

Vinification

Select bunches were hand-picked and gently pressed on their stems before fermentation at 18°C - 20°C in stainless steel tanks using specialist sparkling wine yeasts. A selection of base wines went through malolactic conversion, before secondary bottle fermentation in our naturally regulated underground cellars and 72 months lees ageing.

Maturation

72 months on lees and 6 months on cork post disgorging before release.

Bottling
