Harvest

2014 was a great year with almost perfect growing conditions. A mild spring for budburst, ideal conditions at flowering and high temperatures and plenty of sunshine throughout June and July led to good yields and excellent quality.

‘There were so many fantastic barrels in 2014 it was really hard to whittle it down to the final few. The result is a wonderfully generous wine that will develop for years to come.’
Emma Rice
Head Winemaker

Winemaking

A very limited release, the Kings Cuvée is a premium blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. 100% barrel fermented and then aged for seven months in old oak barrels, resulting in a much softer, creamier and spicier wine. We were spoilt for choice when it came to selecting the absolute best barrels for this prestige wine, thanks to the exceptional 2014 vintage. Once bottled, the wine aged for fifty-two months on lees allowing the development of its complex toasty character. A small dosage of 4g/L was added after disgorgement to balance the wine’s bright acidity.
