This is one of the most important wines that we make at Hattingley, it is the most widely available and arguably one of the most loved. Whilst many people will assume that a ‘vintage’ wine is automatically better (often not the case!), this Non-vintage shows off the skill of Emma’s winemaking.

Being able to blend the wines from different grape varieties, different vineyards, barrels and tanks to try and maintain a consistent style is one of the toughest jobs that the winemaking team have to do. This is our all-rounder, our crowd pleaser and a wine that is very easy for all to love!

YEAR- Non-Vintage (based on 2017 harvest)
GRAPE - Chardonnay 45% Pinot Noir 35% Pinot Meunier 20%
ALCOHOL (ABV) - 12%
VEGETARIAN/VEGAN - Yes
STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS - Please keep in a cool, dark place if possible.
DRINKING WINDOW - Drinking very well now, will improve and mature over the next 3-4 years.

Harvest

2017 presented us with some challenging conditions throughout the growing season: severe spring frosts at the end of April, and a good amount of rainfall all the way through August, lead to lower yields and increased disease pressure during the ripening period. Thankfully, September brought us dry, warm weather, allowing the grapes to be fully ripe and achieve good sugar levels while retaining their crisp acidity.

‘Blending this wine was the Eureka moment – the whole team recognised the distinct Hattingley style immediately it came together in the glass.’
Emma Rice
Head Winemaker

Winemaking

The grapes were whole bunch pressed to extract the juice. 15% of the total blend was barrel fermented in old white Burgundy barrels and partial malolactic fermentation took place in order to soften the wine's natural acidity. To ensure the consistency and continuity of our signature style, 37% of reserve wines (that had naturally softened and developed over time in oak barrels and stainless steel tanks) were added to the blend before secondary fermentation. After 4 years of ageing on lees in the bottle to add roundness and character, the wine was disgorged with a light dosage of 3 g/L.

Classic Reserve NV (Based on 2017 Harvest)

Our Classic Reserve is an elegant bronze gold colour with lemon pith, nougat and zesty citrus on the nose. A delicate, light honey note to the palate with juicy acidity and vibrant orchard fruits. Conference pears, a hint of nuts with a complex finish.

Lovely wine.

Arrived very quickly and well packed. I don’t drink so can’t really say how it tastes. I have bought the wine to give as gifts. I am sure all the recipients will love it.

The Classic Reserve NV is refreshing in that it does not taste of apples like most English sparklers and many champagnes. It is delightfully simple and pure. If I wanted something fizzy that tastes of apples I would buy cider.

Fabulous award-winning English wine

Had not heard of Hattingley but spotted the golf medal from Decanter in June. Easy to order - quick delivery - fab and stylish packaging. The wine was sublime… it didn’t last long!
