Description

An elegant pale gold in colour, bright citrus blossom aromas are highlighted by white grapefruit, lemon sherbet and a mellow whisper of buttery pastry. Layers of ripe greengage and soft peach unfold to shortbread biscuit notes on the rich, creamy back palate. A luxuriously fine mousse is met with a streak of tantalising acidity, creating a complexity that lingers long on the finish.

Vineyard: Ridgeview Wine Estate

100% Single-Vineyard Chardonnay planted in 1995, 28 years ago, at our iconic home vineyard. Ridgeview Wine Estate is based on clay loam soils, placed on a low ridge of Paludina limestone. Sloping southwards towards the South Downs Ridge and just eight miles from the sea, we enjoy a cool maritime climate, where the high hills to the south keep the micro-climate comparatively dry and warm during the growing season.

Vinification

The best parcels of our single-estate Chardonnay were selected by our Head Winemaker and handpicked. The grapes were gently pressed in whole bunches 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 46 months lees ageing.

Maturation

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