2014 was a great year with almost perfect growing conditions. A mild spring for budburst, ideal conditions at flowering with high temperatures and plenty of sunshine throughout June and July leading to good yields and excellent quality.
‘The wines from 2014 practically made themselves and this Blanc de Blancs is no exception. All from chalk vineyards in Sussex and Hampshire this wine is elegant and refined with potential to age beautifully in the bottle.’
The Chardonnay grapes were handpicked and gently whole-bunch pressed. Approximately 13% of the total blend was fermented in old oak barrels and partial malolactic fermentation took place to provide a round and creamy texture. After five years ageing on lees in bottle to add complexity and depth, the wine was disgorged in March 2020 at 6 g/L residual sugar.
