We make this wine in conjunction with one of our longest-standing customers in London, London Shell Co, who have two boats on the Regents canal, serving up some of Britain’s best fish and seafood. We highly recommend visiting them for one of London’s most unique experiences (and the wine isn’t too bad either….).
2018 was a great year for the English wine industry with a nearly perfect growing season - a very cold and wet winter that delayed budburst, ideal conditions at flowering and a record-breaking long summer, resulted in high yields and excellent quality fruit with good concentrations of sugars and balancing acidity.
This limited release sparkling wine is made from Bacchus and Pinot Gris from the 2018 vintage. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were whole bunch pressed and then spent three months in stainless steel tanks. Once bottled the wine spent five months ageing on lees before disgorging.
The Grand Duchess has lovely aromatic elderflower and white flower aromas and balanced soft acidity on the palate. With a ripe fruit and floral character that lingers in the mouth, and refreshing and persistent aromatics on the finish.

I brought Hattingley Valley wine after seeing the “French” advert on TV. It’s very delicious so glad I did.
