Arguably one of the most beloved wines in our range, the classic reserve was certainly made to be a crowd-pleaser!

As our core sparkling wine and a non-vintage, it is carefully blended year after year to create a consistent house style. Blending can be one of the most difficult stages of the winemaking process, but with a touch of tasting and a bit of science, this wine really showcases the amazing skills of our winemaking team! 

But don't worry, because all this hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the Classic Reserve recently won Gold at the prestigious International Wine and Spirit Competition 2023. Left on the lees for 4 years of ageing in the bottle, this unique English blend presents delicate aromas of nougat, orange peel and zesty citrus and is the perfect celebration drink to accompany any party.

  • 47% Chardonnay, 32% Pinot Noir, 19% Pinot Meunier, 2% Pinot Précoce
  • Suggested pairing: This is the perfect aperitif or celebration drink; enjoyed with any canapé. Alternatively, have a look at our tasting notes for this wine.
  • IWSC Gold Medal Winner 2023 
  • IWC Silver Medal Winner 2023

2018 was a great year for the English wine industry with a nearly perfect growing season - a very cold and wet winter that delayed bud burst, ideal conditions at
flowering and a record-breaking long summer resulted in high yields and excellent quality fruit with a good concentration of sugars and balancing acidityWinemaking

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.

‘The gloriously long, hot summer of 2018 was a legendary harvest for our vineyards, giving enormous quantities of flavourful, concentrated, ripe fruit. Yet the vibrant acidity that English Sparkling Wine is famous for was also there as a balance to the ripeness, providing a thrilling backdrop to the intense flavours of this great year.’

Excellent Wine.

Excellent wine at an affordable price promptly delivered.

Hattingley Valley sparkling wine is very nearly as good as premium Champagne. The only reason it isn’t, is because it isn’t actual Champagne. It tastes just as good, it looks just as good, it is just as good. I prefer it, because it’s grown and fermented in my own village. How cool is that?

Quality & finesse

We absolutely love this wine! It has such a high quality and finesse and is extremely moorish!
