Harvest

2016 was a low-yielding, late vintage that gave expressive, intense, ripe fruit – potentially a great vintage. We vividly remember how beautiful these grapes were when we harvested them.

2017 saw April frosts and mixed weather, leading to an early harvest, but some excellent wines were made. Including this one!

Winemaking

We worked closely on the wines with Emma Rice, Hattingley Valley’s head winemaker, who’s not only a font of knowledge but also very patient…

We worked together on all the key decisions (details as below). Our over-riding aim was to make wines with character and elegance. Wines that were balanced but had something to say. Refined, individual wines worthy of your time and investment.

Tasting Notes

Hope & Glory Blanc de Blancs 2016 (the one with the man on the label) is electric. With vivid flavours of ripe green apples and fresh bread, it’s refined, stylish and complex. One to revive the senses and nourish the soul.

Hope & Glory The Blend 2017 (the one with the woman on the label) is scented and succulent. Let its beguiling aromas swirl in the glass before your tastebuds savour the enticing flavours of red apple and biscuits. Dangerously moreish.
