2019 saw a good start to the growing season with plenty of sunshine and the hottest Easter Bank Holiday on record, followed by a warm, wet summer. That led to an increased disease pressure during the ripening season, however, our vineyard team did an excellent work ensuring the optimum quality of the fruit. The result was good yields of clean healthy grapes with excellent concentration of natural sugar and flavours.
‘There can’t be many other wines that express just how English they are in the glass. Bursting with aromas of elderflower and other hedgerow characters, this blend of Bacchus and Pinot Gris takes the expression of terroir to another level. Whilst the Bacchus provides the floral notes and white fruit flavours, the Pinot Gris gives the wine the backbone required for fermentation in the bottle.’
This is a unique sparkling wine made in the traditional method from Bacchus and Pinot Gris. The grapes were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. After fermentation at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks, the wine rested on lees for just three months before being bottled, in order to preserve its freshness and powerful aromas. Once in bottle, it spent further a 12 months ageing on its lees before disgorging.
The English Gent has a delicate pale gold colour with hues of green. Bursting with vibrant aromas of elderflower and hedgerow, with notes of white fruit that follow through onto the palate. This is a wine with a well balanced and refreshing acidity, and persistent aromatics on the finish.
This is the perfect aperitif or celebration drink, it is the flawless accompaniment to any party, enjoyed with any canapé.
