We make this wine in conjunction with one of our longest-standing customers in London, London Shell Co, who have two boats on the Regents canal, serving up some of Britain’s best fish and seafood. We highly recommend visiting them for one of London’s most unique experiences (and the wine isn’t too bad either….).

Harvest

2018 was a great year for the English wine industry with a nearly perfect growing season - a very cold and wet winter that delayed budburst, ideal conditions at flowering and a record-breaking long summer, resulted in high yields and excellent quality fruit with good concentrations of sugars and balancing acidity.

Winemaking

This limited release sparkling wine is made from Bacchus and Pinot Gris from the 2018 vintage. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were whole bunch pressed and then spent three months in stainless steel tanks. Once bottled the wine spent five months ageing on lees before disgorging.

Tasting Notes

The Grand Duchess has lovely aromatic elderflower and white flower aromas and balanced soft acidity on the palate. With a ripe fruit and floral character that lingers in the mouth, and refreshing and persistent aromatics on the finish.

SINGLE BOTTLE - 1 x 75cl 
CASE - 6 x 75cl.

Perfect bottle for a special occasion

I ordered this bottle for a special occasion as we have visited the vinyard for a tour previously. It tasted absolutely sublime, both myself and my partner enjoyed every sip. I have now placed an order for more for my wedding morning bridal party!

Mother’s 65th

Did not personally taste, but ordered as part of my mums 65th birthday celebrations to compliment an afternoon tea. Both parents enjoyed the fizz, commenting on how well it went with the food as a midday drink.

Unexpected pleasure

First tasting of Hattingley Valley and the Grand Duchess 2018. Really pleasantly surprised at how fresh and accurate it was. Real taste of elderflower as described. Very pale in colour and crisp in taste. Very enjoyable will buy again
